For the past three years, Air Methods has been focused on securing in-network partnerships with health insurance companies so that our patients receive a discounted rate for our services.

Air Methods is now in-network with more than 50 commercial health plans across the U.S. Over 80% percent of the population is covered for Air Methods’ high-quality care either through commercial insurance or through Medicare or Medicaid so they will not receive a balance bill for services. We are committed to being 100% in-network and continue securing new partnerships as we work toward that goal.

As Air Methods continues to secure additional in-network agreements, its Patient Advocacy program also supports patients with insurance bills when their air medical care and transportation is an out-of-network benefit. The Patient Advocacy program team works on the patients’ behalf, especially as related to supporting patients with billing questions and insurance appeals.

Earlier this year, Air Methods SVP of Reimbursement, Chris Myers, wrote an article on the importance of health insurance companies going in-network with air medical companies for Managed Healthcare Executive. You can read that article here to learn more here.
