Mercy Flights Serving Our community since 1949!
Founded in 1949, by George Milligan, an air traffic controller and pilot, who tired of seeing the sick in his community suffer and in some cases, die, due to lack of timely treatment, rallied the residents of Jackson County to join in the founding of Mercy Flights! Today, Mercy Flights employs over 140 people, with 25 Ambulances, responding to more than 26,000 calls last year. Mercy Flights responds to emergencies by air using two types of Air Ambulances, three Twin-Engine King Air C-90s, and a Bell 407GX Helicopter. All aircraft are equipped for critical care, with state-of-the-art medical equipment and highly trained crews. As many people have learned, emergency medical transport is very expensive. Ground ambulance fees start at more than $1,144, fixed wing $13,442, and helicopter, $20,745, plus mileage. But Mercy Flights membership will protect your family from the high cost of these lifesaving services. Our Membership program is designed to fill the gap left by inadequate or nonexistent insurance coverage, with out-of-pocket costs eliminated or drastically reduced. When you have a membership, Mercy Flights will bill your insurance and will accept what your insurance pays as payment in full.  For example, if the charge is $3,000, and your insurance pays $2,000, Mercy Flights will write off the balance. If Mercy Flights receives no insurance payment, you will only be responsible for 50% of the bill. Currently 18,000 households have discovered the value of these memberships. Annual rates for individuals are $75 and $85 for families, with discounts for seniors and groups. And, if you do not use our services, your annual membership fees can be a tax deductible donation. Mercy Flights operates solely on its membership, user fees and donations. If you’d like to learn more about membership, including the Angel Program where you can give the gift of membership, to someone you care about, call Mercy Flights or visit  Mercy Flights – We’re here for you, because of you!
