At A Glance
- Miracle Flights provides free commercial flights to children and adults who need assistance to reach life-changing
medical care not available in their local communities.
- Commercial plane tickets are provided at no cost to patients or their families, as many times as needed.
- Miracle Flights programs include domestic flights to all U.S.–based medical treatment facilities.
- Miracle Flights is not disease specific nor is it age restrictive. We will fly anyone with a complex medical need who
requires distant medical care.
- Patients can be joined by up to two parents, guardians or caregivers. All flights are subject to household income
eligibility with supporting documentation.
- Almost all Miracle Flights patients suffer from critical conditions for which there are only a select number of experts
in the country, making medical travel necessary.
- Many patients with complex medical needs go untreated or misdiagnosed, simply because they cannot gain access to
the medical experts who can effectively treat their condition.
- While insurance may cover many aspects of treatment, it often does not cover the cost of travel. That’s where
Miracle Flights comes in. Miracle Flights alleviates the financial burden of travel so families can focus on treatment
