SkyMed - More Affordable Than You Think

Updated: Apr 15, 2022

Let's face it, we're all getting older, therefore, health care and health care insurance is a common question and topic of conversation when moving to, retiring or snow birding to Lake Chapala. If you have existing insurance coverage in your home country of the U.S. or Canada, one of the options to connect you to your health coverage might be SkyMed. SkyMed can be the bridge to take you from Mexico to the health insurance coverage you already have in place and are already paying for in your home country.

The flagship of the SkyMed Group of Companies, SkyMed International has been serving the traveling public since 1989. SkyMed is a membership company specializing in 18 emergency travel services and have organized air evacuations literally from all over the world under almost every kind of circumstance. If a member sustains a critical illness or injury while traveling in one of the 32 countries that make up the SkyMed UNIVERSE, they will be returned back to their home hospital of choice once stabilized.

There is even optional coverage available for travel outside of the 32 country SkyMed UNIVERSE called Global Emergency Transport Service (GETS). So unless you are located on the moon, SkyMed is there for you!

SkyMed includes a lot in their emergency travel services.

Included in an Ultimate SkyMed Membership are:

  • hospital to hospital emergency air transport

  • vehicle return (autos, R.V.'s Motorcycles, Vessels)

  • visitor transportation

  • transportation for recuperation nearer home

  • commercial carrier medical escort flights

  • minor children/grandchildren return

  • physical remains return

  • companion transportation

  • return transportation after recovery

  • incidental expense allowance

  • organ retrieval

  • organ recipient transportation

  • pet transportation

  • 24 hour assistance

  • ground ambulance

  • helicopter service

  • driver disability

All of this and more, without co pays, deductibles or claim forms.

Plus, SkyMed has recently added a Covid-19 Transport Option which costs between $150 to $500.

SkyMed takes care of it all. With just a simple phone call, SkyMed rolls into action and arranges for an escort, ambulances, doctors along the way, medical flight staff and planes. Your spouse or significant other is also brought along, even your pets!

If you are a permanent resident in the Lake Chapala area and do not have any coverage in the U.S. or Canada, then SkyMed might still be the option for you. For example, If you had a serious health issue in the United States, you can be evacuated from the U.S., where health care costs are very high, and flown home to Guadalajara where health care costs are low.

Or if you travel outside of the Lake Chapala area, within Mexico or even internationally, SkyMed's 'Take You Home' guarantee will bring you back home to Guadalajara.


Pricing is affordable and flexible.

Do you think that this service is too expensive for you? Be prepared to be surprised. SkyMed services can be had for as little as $350 per year with preexisting conditions accepted on the 91st day. That's less than a $1.00 per day!

SkyMed is all about saving you money. Why have insurance in your home county and insurance in Mexico? Avoid paying for additional insurance here in Mexico and build the SkyMed bridge to health coverage you already have.

If living frugally in Mexico is your aim and you have Canadian provincial health care, U.S. Medicare, VA insurance or private health care, you need SkyMed when a critical accident or injury occurs as the bridge to GET YOU HOME where your medical is paid for, you have familiar doctors, family and friends AND can be treated in your own language.

When a critical medical emergency occurs, you'll either be glad you have SkyMed, or wish you did! SkyMed takes YOU, your traveling companion, your car, motorcycle, boat, children, grandchildren, physical remains and even your pets, ALL THE WAY HOME!
