Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) includes a voluntary audit every three years to establish we meet and exceed industry-wide standards. These standards address not only the quality of patient care, education of medical personnel, and medical equipment, but also operational and safety concerns. Achieving CAMTS accreditation is a mark of excellence for a critical care transport program. The Air Methods standard is for all CBS programs to earn CAMTS after one year of service.
Air Methods has invested over $100 million in advanced safety programs and technologies.
Air Methods’ development and investment in safety programs, including IEP, FOQA, and FAA accepted SMS, is unmatched in the air medical industry.

We are committed to providing our requestors with the most accurate ETE possible, so that you can focus on the patient, not when your transport will arrive.
Air medical transport ETE (Estimated Time Enroute) is a best estimate for when you can expect your transport to arrive. Receiving an ETE means that dispatch will add estimated lift time and flight time to give you a number of minutes that you can expect our aircraft to arrive. Only receiving part of this equation can lead to misleading transport timing.
Air Methods is one of the only air medical providers to train pilots on Level-D full-motion simulators that replicate an actual helicopter. Our pilots have completed nearly 500,000 take offs and landings on full-motion simulators.
Over the last few years, we have made significant investments to ensure patients are taken out of the middle.
Air Methods is an in-network provider with many insurance companies throughout the country, including Medicare and Medicaid.
