Having an air ambulance membership can provide several benefits in the event of a life-or-death situation or anymedical emergency requiring rapid transport to a healthcare facility by air instead of ground. While the reasons for needing air ambulance treatment and transportation in emergencies vary,there are many benefits to purchasing a membership with your local provider, like AirMedCare Network (AMCN) if the unthinkable happens to you or a family member.
Five Benefits of Air Ambulance Membership
Air ambulance memberships typically offer financial protection for these emergency services. This means that if you or a covered family member require urgent medical transportation by air ambulance, you can stop worrying about the high expenses that may come with it. Air ambulances are equipped to treat and transport patients quickly to the nearest appropriate medical facility, which can be crucial in life-threatening situations. While there is no difference in service, because medical crews are not made aware of patients’ insurance or membership status, our members never have to cover any out-of-pocket costs only when treated by one of our provider’s air ambulances.
Air ambulance crews are some of the most highly trained and experienced providers in pre-hospital medicine. A team typically consists of a pilot, registered nurse and paramedic who have received additional training in air ambulance and fixed-wing medical treatment and transport. Additionally, our aircraft are equipped with ICU or ER-level capabilities, delivering the best care available to you at a moment’s notice. From neo-natal to geriatric patients, experienced and caring air ambulance crews are ready for the call.
Many air ambulance memberships are part of a small regional network of air medical providers included in a membership plan. This means that you’ll only have access to a network of experienced healthcare professionals and resources in a particular geographic area. However, if you are a member of AMCN, you have the same financial protection if you need emergency air ambulance services at home or when you travel to 320 locations across 38 states.
Knowing that you have an air ambulance membership can provide financial peace of mind, especially if you or your family members frequently travel, live in remote areas or have medical conditions that may require specialized care. You can have confidence that help will be readily available in the event of an emergency at no out-of-pocket cost for you or a loved one, only when transported by an AMCN participating provider. Memberships vary across networks and some networks limit coverage to an individual or limit the number of air ambulance transports in a year. With AMCN, your entire household enjoys the same financial protection and there is no limit to the number of emergency air services you receive per year.
The added complication of becoming seriously ill while you’re away from home can pose many more challenges to recovery. If you become hospitalized while traveling, additional membership options beyond the initial emergency treatment and transportation could be the key to a more comfortable, affordable long-term recovery. A scheduled, return medical flight to a hospital closer to home can be cost prohibitive for many people. However, memberships like Fly-U-Home provide non-emergency medical transportation to patients needing to get from one hospital to another, closer to home – with NO out-of-pocket expenses to the patient for the trip.
It’s important to note that the specific benefits of air ambulance memberships can vary widely. Choosing membership with AirMedCare Network ensures coverage in locations within 38 states. With over 3 million members, AMCN is the largest air ambulance membership network in the United States. Our low annual membership fees and monthly payment options make it affordable for those people who need this type of service most often – like residents of rural communities, travelers, seniors and people without nearby access to specialty hospitals. AirMedCare Network offers emergency air ambulance membership and non-emergency Fly-U-Home memberships, for emergency care and non-emergency treatment and transport back home for continuing hospital care.Members also have access to Teladoc at a special members-only rate, providing board-certified medical personnel for medical care from the comfort of home.
