Air Evac Member Benefit

Published Sep. 20, 2013 | Discuss this article on Facebook

Air Evac is offering Pickaway County Farm Bureau members a new member benefit -- $10 off any one-year membership Air Evac offers.

Although you do not have to be an Air Evac member to be transported, membership offers several important benefits:

First, as one of more than 1 million members, Air Evac Lifeteam will work on your behalf with your benefits provider to secure payment for your flight, with any uncovered amounts considered to be fully prepaid. As such, members who are transported by the Air Evac Lifeteam will not receive a bill for the flight. Importantly, your membership is valid in all of Air Evac's service areas so you are covered while traveling in those areas.

Second, becoming an Air Evac Lifeteam member is a good way to support the health care needs of your local community. Our membership base - the largest of its kind in the United States - helps Air Evac operate in rural areas where having a quick response time to critical medical situations can save lives. Approximately 90 percent of its patient transports originate from a super rural or rural zip code as defined by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). If it weren't for Air Evac members, it would be challenged to provide this lifesaving service in many of these outlying communities.

Visit the Air Evac website to learn more. If you would like to sign up for a membership, see the attached application, call the office and get the special code required for your $10 off. The office number is 740-474-6284.
