Membership Truly Pays Off for the Starrettes

My mother signed up for AirMedCare Network membership at the beginning of January 2015. We lived with her at the time, so my family was covered. She had only paid the first month’s fee when we ended up needing it.

My daughter, Bella, who was 23 months old at the time, got up in the middle of the night on January 30th and opened a childproof bottle of 81mg aspirin (we still have no idea where she found the aspirin). I woke up to pills all over the floor and rushed her to the ER at 6 am.

I was certain she had not eaten very many, because they were not the chewable tablets and I thought the taste would have deterred her. When we arrived at the ER, they tested her aspirin level in her blood. It was 8 times higher than normal, so they sent her via ambulance to the Children’s Hospital 30 miles away. Her level kept increasing, and by 4 pm, it had doubled to over 16 times the normal level. We were then flown by plane to Vanderbilt Hospital for a life-saving dialysis and blood transfusion. The plane ride was $55,000!!!! My insurance covered approximately $5,000. AirMedCare Network covered the rest.

If not for AirMedCare Network membership, we would’ve probably had to file bankruptcy. I tell everyone I know about it, and I post about it online to the medical groups I am a member of.

Frequently Asked Questions:

If an AirMedCare Network Provider does not transport you, you will be responsible for payment. Our membership program only covers transports provided by our affiliates.

There is no limit to the number of transports a member may take in a year. Each transport is handled the same way and must be an emergent or time-sensitive transport as determined by a physician (or other appropriate provider) or first responder unaffiliated with AMCN.

With an AirMedCare Network membership, any person or persons who reside under one (residential) roof are covered. In the event we have a member who lives in a duplex or apartment complex, we designate the primary member’s residence/address— that is considered the “one roof”. Undergraduate college students can be covered under their parent’s membership as well as anyone previously residing in the household who is then moved to a permanent care facility.
