AirMed Teams with MedFlight to Offer New Global Memberships
Unique two-tier air medical membership program is the first of its kind in Ohio.
Birmingham, Alabama (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
AirMed International, the premier global air ambulance and medical solutions company, has announced a new partnership with MedFlight, the long-standing non-profit air and ground medical transportation service based in Ohio. This new, unique air and ground medical transportation membership program is called MedFlight Advantage.™
The new membership program is designed to cover Ohio individuals and families on an annual basis and has two plan levels. MedFlight Advantage™ includes full service ground and helicopter transport for an entire family if the unthinkable happens. The Advantage Global™ plan adds AirMed’s long-distance services to the program and provides complete air medical transport coverage on a worldwide basis. Advantage Global, just like AirMed, brings you home to the hospital of your choice from any point on the globe with no hidden fees, co-pays or deductibles.
“AirMed already covers more than 1 million lives as part of our current membership program, and we are extremely pleased to now serve the residents of Ohio through MedFlight Advantage Global,” said AirMed CEO Jeffrey Tolbert.
Accidents can happen anywhere, not just near home. Business and leisure travel takes people across the country on a regular basis—what if they are hospitalized 500 miles away from home? And for those who travel internationally, it can cost $200,000 or more to return you home to your loved ones. MedFlight Advantage Global membership gives members complete access to the industry’s most experienced teams in long-distance air medical transportation and patient care, all for little more than a dollar a day.
MedFlight’s Advantage Membership can be found at medflight.com/advantage.
