Cost:  $75/year

Lifeflight also offers discounts for certain professions, (first responders and teachers to name a couple). Make sure to ask if you qualify!  They also offer a lifetime benefit, either paid in full or via four installments.

Remember; this yearly fee covers your entire family with no out of pocket expense, no-copays and no deductibles.

How much does a typical flight cost without Lifeflight insurance?   Many factors can determine the cost of each flight. These factors can include:  distance to be covered, the type of medical equipment and personnel required, and any additional services needed during the transport. On average, an air ambulance flight within the United States can range from $12,000 to $55,000.  There are no fixed costs, and it is often not your choice if you get flown or not (first responders, doctors and medical personal typically makes these calls together).
