What MASA Benefit Is Most Important to You?
COVID Quarantine Expense Protection
If a Member contracts COVID outside of the United States and is required to enter a mandatory quarantine, MASA will reimburse out-of-pocket expenses. This coverage includes accommodation, meals and airline re-booking.
Medical Payments Advisor
It’s no secret that medical bills are confusing and overwhelming. MASA’s professional advisors help Members coordinate communications to health insurers, verify policy enrollment, confirm medical benefits coverage, provide a medical expense outline and much more.
Hospital Private Room Upgrade
MASA will cover up to $1,500 per year in the event a Member needs a private hospital room after using their emergency transportation coverage.
Emergency Air Ambulance Coverage
In emergency scenarios where treatment is time-sensitive and specialized care is not available, MASA will cover members out-of-pocket expenses associated with emergent fixed-wing and rotary aircraft transport. All flights must be ordered by a first responder or transferring physician who deems air transport as medically necessary. This benefit is valid within the United States and Canada.
Emergency Ground Ambulance Coverage
MASA will cover out-of-pocket expenses incurred by ground ambulance transportation services resulting from a serious emergency to the nearest and most appropriate medical facility or suitable airport.
Hospital to Hospital Ambulance Coverage
If a member requires a specialized level of care that’s not available at their current facility, MASA will cover out-of-pocket expenses associated with hospital-to-hospital transportation. This includes transfer by a medically equipped, rotary or fixed-wing aircraft or ground ambulance.
Hospital to Rehab, Skilled Nursing, Long-Term Care or Home Transportation Coverage
Occasionally, high-level treatment is required after an emergency situation. MASA will cover up to $500 in the event a Member’s physician orders non-emergency ground transportation to a rehabilitation facility, skilled nursing facility, long-term care facility or hospice facility.
Repatriation to Hospital Near Home Coverage
If a member is hospitalized while away from home, MASA MTS will fly them to a medical facility near their home to recuperate around family and in familiar surroundings.
Minor Return Transportation Coverage
When a Member’s grandchildren or great-grandchildren are left unattended as a result of a member needing ground ambulance transportation, MASA MTS will provide one-way common carrier air transport for return of the children to the commercial airport nearest the place of residence of the children.
Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren Protection
MASA MTS will cover out-of-pocket expenses for all the Emergency Shield Plan benefits for the Member’s grandchildren and great grandchildren (up to the age of 14) excluding Emergency Air Ambulance Coverage and Hospital to Hospital Ambulance Coverage.
Extended Hospital Stay Incidental Expense Coverage
If a member becomes hospitalized over 100 miles from home for an extended period of 7 days or more, MASA will reimburse up to $500 for incidentals incurred. This includes hotels, food, transportation and more.
Patient Return Transportation Coverage
Sometimes, emergencies arise while you’re on vacation. If an emergency occurs 100 miles away from home, MASA will cover a Member’s commercial flight back to their place of residence.
Companion Transportation Coverage
Nobody should have to experience an emergency situation alone. That’s why MASA covers a Member’s spouse, other family member or companion to accompany the Member if they need emergency transportation services.
Companion Return Transportation Coverage
Booking a last-minute flight is expensive. MASA will provide your companion with a ticket to return home from the nearest airport to where you are hospitalized.
Hospital Visitor Transportation Coverage
Accidents happen when you least expect them. If a member is hospitalized more than 100 miles away from home, MASA will provide a round-trip ticket and taxi expenses up to $200 for a family member to visit you during your hospital stay.
Vehicle & RV Return Coverage
After a Member is taken away from their vehicle or RV via emergency ground transportation, MASA will return owned vehicles to the member's residence or rental vehicles to the appropriate company. MASA will make all the arrangements and cover the costs of fuel, oil and driver.
Pet Return Transportation Coverage
If a member utilizes one of our services while a pet is in their possession, we will provide return transportation of the pet to the member’s residence.
Organ Retrieval & Organ Recipient Transportation
MASA MTS will provide air transportation of an organ to be used in an organ transplant. We will also fly members to the commercial airport nearest the medical facility where an organ transplant is scheduled to happen.

Travel Concierge Service
In the event an emergency happens abroad, we’ll assist with commercial airline scheduling, luggage retrieval, emergency visa acquisition and more.
I bought my parents a MASA Membership last year for Christmas. A few months ago, my Dad had a stroke while they were in Antigua. MASA medical transport solutions helped get my parents back to Michigan and to their preferred specialists. Now, my Dad is doing great. Thanks to MASA MTS medical, he got the care he needed in the place he desired.

My husband and I purchased MASA several years ago when we decided to go on the road in our motorhome full time. It was the best decision that we ever made. It gives PEACE OF MIND. We would truly recommend MASA. We had to call on their services several times and they were always there to help. Thank you all so much.

Thanks to MASA for paying the bill. We like MASA so much that we have purchased Lifetime memberships for each of our four children. One of them has had to use it and it worked out well. Thanks again.
