City of Hanceville, AL has entered into an agreement with Air Evac Lifeteam, giving residents’ peace of mind with county-wide membership coverage.
In the event an insured City of Hanceville, AL resident is flown by Air Evac Lifeteam, or any AirMedCare Network participating provider, for a life- or limb-threatening emergency from within Cullman County, Al., 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.
City residents may also take advantage of upgrading to full AirMedCare Network Membership at a discounted rate, to gain full coverage with no pickup location or insurance coverage restrictions.
For questions about membership in the AirMedCare Network program, please call 800-793-0010 or visit www.airmedcarenetwork.com.
