Preparing for the worst

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

As we start the New Year, we want to think about fresh beginnings and not unexpected illness or injury.

But unfortunately it happens often and it is an expensive reality.  Medical air transport is indispensable for individuals who experience a life- or limb-threatening emergency miles away from the nearest medical facility.  Last year Air Evac Lifeteam of West Liberty and Inez flew out several people from your area to trauma care hospitals in Lexington, Cincinnati, and Huntington.  Insurance coverage pays part of the bill, but there is an out-of-pocket expense that is passed to the patient and their family.  


To provide financial peace of mind AirMedCare Network created a membership program that will greatly reduce the burden should, God forbid, you or a member of your family need to be flown due to an accident or medical emergency. The membership covers everyone in your household and covers your air transport bill for any reason should you be flown.  The membership even covers transports that are classified not medically necessary.  As part of the membership, our company will immediately begin working with your insurance company so that you will never have to be involved in the claim process.  Any payment from your insurance will be considered payment in full.  The membership also covers individuals who do not have health insurance as well.  

AirMedCare Network is an alliance among REACH Air Medical Services, Air Evac Lifeteam, Med-Trans Air Medical Transport and EagleMed, creating America’s largest air ambulance membership program. The AirMedCare Network membership automatically enrolls you in all four membership programs at the same low price you would normally pay for just one of the programs!  Air Evac member’s enjoy the benefits of a 28 state service area, 220 aircraft locations, more than 1,500,000 network members. In Kentucky alone there are 15 Air Evac Lifeteam bases.

It’s a small price to pay for piece of mind.  For more information, please call membership representative Justin Back at 606-548-1663 or for additional information about membership call 606-273-8398.
