PRESTONSBURG – City of Prestonsburg officials have entered into an agreement with AirMedCare Network, providing their residents peace of mind in the event of a medical emergency with county-wide membership coverage.
Air Evac Lifeteam is a participating provider in the AirMedCare Network, the largest air ambulance membership network in the United States. AirMedCare Network participating providers include more than 260 air medical bases across 32 states, providing air ambulance services for residents who suffer a life- or limb-threatening illness or injury.
In the event an insured Prestonsburg, a resident is flown by Air Evac Lifeteam or any AirMedCare Network participating provider for a life- or limb-threatening emergency originating from within Floyd, Johnson, Pike, Martin or Magoffin counties, that AMCN-participating air medical service will work with your benefits provider to secure payment for the flight. Whatever the patient’s benefits provider pays is considered payment in full. Even with medical insurance, an air medical transport may leave patients and their families with unexpected out-of-pocket expenses. If the resident transported is uninsured at the time of transport, Air Evac Lifeteam will bill the covered person at the “Medicare Allowable Rate” for the transport.
Prestonsburg residents may also take advantage of upgrading to a full AirMedCare Network membership at a discounted rate, to gain full coverage with no pickup location or insurance coverage restrictions.
