Mercy Flights says it has to make changes to be in compliance with new Medicare rules. Ambulance fees start at $1,200 for ground ambulance and more than $15,000 for transport by air.

With a Mercy Flights membership, you save money on that emergency treatment. The annual membership is increasing by about $10.
