When serious illness or injury strikes, every second counts. Emergency air transport could be critical to survival and recovery.

With Careflight, Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center in Sioux Falls is bringing state-of-the-art medical technologies to people throughout the region, often beginning trauma care in the air.

The Membership Program

Because the cost of air transport often exceeds $10,000, Avera McKennan offers the Careflight Membership Program. For a low membership fee of $49 per year, you have full protection for you and all immediate family members in need of emergency medical transport.

In all cases, emergency personnel decide whether the use of Careflight is necessary.

If you or a family member need Careflight emergency transport, costs are completely covered for Avera McKennan service. We will bill your insurance carrier and accept their payment as payment in full. And if you do not carry medical insurance, when you are a Careflight member your costs will be covered.
