MASA Global's mission is to provide industry-leading medical transportation solutions for our members, both during life and after life, and to provide peace of mind for our members as they prepare for the financial burden that follows life's biggest emergencies.
MASA Global was founded in 1974 as Medical Air Services Association (MASA). We evolved to MASA Global, a dba, to reflect the company’s undisputed leadership in providing complete and affordable medical transportation solutions. With over 1,000,000 active members worldwide, 18 international locations, and serving the major U.S. metropolitan areas, MASA Global continues to grow exponentially.
Our products provide two distinct advantages that are without rival in the industry: A membership program that includes the most comprehensive fixed-wing-aircraft, helicopter and ground ambulance transportation solutions for consumers who are at home, at work or traveling the world and complete protection from the financial catastrophes that unexpected medical transportation costs will cause.
OUR BUSINESS DIVISIONS.

DID YOU KNOW…
- Medical transportation costs increase the further you are away from emergency care. The most common claim submitted to MASA MTS is for ground ambulance service within a 20 mile radius of their residence.
- The average costs of a helicopter transport is over $20,000 and may run as high as $100,000. Every year, over a half million Americans are flown by helicopter to receive emergency care.
- Fixed wing transports are routinely conducted as non-emergent transfers and therefore require pre-approval with either prepayment or a guarantee of payment. Medicare will NOT pre-approve payments for flights that can easily reach $50,000 for domestic flights as much as $200,000 or more for international flights.
Medicare will NOT pre-approve payments for flights.
IN THE NEWS…
Medical emergency transport costs are out of control, particularly air ambulance services. Although it could be the flight that saves your life, the astronomical bills that follow and the aggressive collection practices from air ambulance providers have left many Americans angry and frustrated. Only a MASA MTS plan can take care of these catastrophic costs.
