Air Ambulance 1
Can you use your existing medical insurance plan to help pay for the cost of an air ambulance service for yourself or a child? Absolutely. In fact, it’s our insurance coordinators that make Air Ambulance 1 different than most medical flight companies in the industry.
Medical insurance for air ambulances is a very complicated process. Fortunately, this is a service that Air Ambulance 1 puts a lot of energy into so that our patients and their families don’t have to. It’s something that separates us from the rest of the medical flight industry as a whole.
It takes a professional with medical billing training to determine if your policy offers any type of air ambulance or medical flight transfer coverage. Most insurance companies will try to decline air ambulance services by stating it is not covered when it is and offer a less accommodating and inexpensive service. As such, it can leave our patients feeling as if there are no other options available. When you need to be transported domestically or internationally, a medical flight may be the only viable option. Especially if the patient is in critical condition or is an infant.
This is why it is very important to consult with our Medical Billing Department before contacting your insurance company. Insurance providers are a business aimed to make a profit, so if they think they can discourage you from applying your coverage to something like an air ambulance, they will.
Our insurance experts know the lingo, technical details, and how to maneuver this seemingly confusing process. If you have insurance coverage for a medical fight, we’ll fight for you to get it. Taking no as an answer is simply not an option. You or your child’s life could depend on it.
If we think your situation should be covered by your insurance company then we will contact them and go through the process of pre-approving the services at no cost to you. After the medical flight has taken place, we’ll follow up with your carrier to ensure that the claim is processed properly and that they have all of the supporting information to show why this service was medically necessary.
