What is an Air Ambulance?
All of us have seen ambulances speeding down the highway, but have you ever seen an ambulance soaring through the air? You may have, and not even been aware of it, as the Air Ambulance Service available from Air Critical Care flies patients all around the world to receive the medical attention and care that they need.
How They Do It
Air Critical Care doesn't equip their jets with sirens, but they do make sure that their patients get to the remote medical facilities they need to check into at the fastest speeds possible. When a patient is in need of seeing a physician or receiving medical services at a location that is very far away, the Air Ambulance jumps into action.
Air Critical Care has a line of jets that are equipped with the medical monitoring equipment needed to keep patients safe and healthy during their trip. They also staff the jets with qualified medical professionals who have been trained to provide the high level of medical monitoring and care that every patient deserves.
Does Insurance Cover this Service?
Many people ask whether or not insurance will pay for the Air Ambulance Service, is they should need to use it. There is no clear cut answer, as every insurance policy is different, so the folks at Air Critical Care cannot guarantee that insurance will cover these services. If you have a family member or loved one who may need to use these services, you'll want to check with your insurance company to see whether or not any of your costs will be covered.
This is a totally different kind of ambulance, but it has the same goal as ambulances have always had – to safely transport patients to the medical facility that they need to get to.
