In brief: Depends
The elapid group contains ~300 species with a variety of toxins within their bite.
Where access to urgent & critical care services & Antivenin is available recovery is possible, although difficult. See: www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pmc/articles/pmc172667/?Tool=pmcentrez.

In brief: Yes
Yes, there is Antivenin for most elapids but elapids are extremely dangerous and have very deadly neurotoxins which can kill quickly.
If bitten, seek immediate medical care!
