It cost me 10k just for a 15 mile helicopter ride for my wife last September, when she was medflighted. Air evacuation by jet ambulance can easily run $100,000 or higher, say for instance going from Cozumel to Miami. Why so much? Because they can and also because there is so much default on paying for these runs they have to pass the costs on in hopes that some will pay and it will even out.
