Emergency Care Should Not Require A Membership

There are a lot of misrepresentations about the cost of air medical transport. Air Methods is working to create a better way.

Memberships Have Created
Confusion Among Patients
and caregivers.

If I don't have a membership, the air medical provider won't transport me if there's an emergency.

MYTH

FACT

No memberships are needed for transportation. Air Methods will transport any patient needing our services – regardless of any membership or ability to pay.

If I don't have a membership, I – or my family – will get stuck with a major bill from the air medical transport.

MYTH

FACT

Maybe for other providers. Air Methods' Patient Advocacy team works with all patients, regardless of their insurance, to find a solution that works best for them.

A membership is insurance and will make sure I don't have to handle insurance claims.

MYTH

FACT

Memberships are not insurance. They are not regulated and don't eliminate the need for you to file and work through the insurance process.

With a membership, you can choose to fly with that particular air medical provider.

MYTH

FACT

Not really. Air medical services are for emergencies. Because of this, the closet, most appropriate provider should be called. Chances are likely this won't be with your membership provider.

Regardless of insurance, I still need a membership for air transport.

MYTH

FACT

Memberships are sold to everyone. To start, no one needs a membership. But some, such as those on Medicaid are covered completely. Most Medicare patients are the same.
