U.S. Marine Corps veterans Jake Wood and William McNulty founded the nonprofit in 2010 in the wake of the Haiti earthquake. Team Rubicon has grown from eight volunteers to more than 68,000, with more than 220 operations under its belt, including responses to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Volunteers are also providing relief and medical care in Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria and conducting wildfire relief in Northern California.
“Here at Medjet, we have long been admirers of Team Rubicon’s mission and what they do for both the country and world at large,” confirmed Medjet President and CEO, Roy Berger.
Medjet’s campaign comes on the heels of the November 1st announcement that the company’s elevated MedjetHorizon membership option, which extends medical transport and crisis response to a wide range of travel instances such as political threat and terrorism, has added both natural disaster and pandemic protection to its scope of coverage.

Medjet is the industry leader in travel protection and medical transport, forging a global network of air medical transport affiliates and security providers over the past 26 years. At any given time, Medjet has access to more than 250 private air ambulances and commercial medical escorts, as well as specially trained emergency medical and security personnel, ready to launch from both domestic and international locations 24/7. The company most notably differentiates from other players in the market through its commitment to arrange air medical transfer to the member’s home country hospital of choice (not just “nearest acceptable”), regardless of medical necessity. Similarly, unlike other travel security and response membership programs, the company’s MedjetHorizon option does not rely on hard triggers, such as government-issued evacuation orders, to act on behalf of members.
