What is the Air Evac Lifeteam?
The Air Evac Lifeteam is a dedicated group of highly trained pilots, paramedics and registered nurses, standing by 24-hours a day to provide rapid medical transport to critically ill or injured people.
The Air Evac Lifeteam can fly quickly to the scene of an accident or medical emergency, bringing its life-saving equipment and crew to provide immediate medical attention during those critical early moments following an accident or emergency. Traveling at speeds of up to 130 miles per hour, the helicopter rapidly transports patients to the nearest medical facility that can provide the appropriate care. The Air Evac Lifeteam works closely with ground ambulance crews to provide you with the best patient care possible. Air Evac Lifeteam was founded in 1985, and since that time has flown more than 35,000 people who were in critical need of care.
What About Insurance?
Even if you have insurance, it probably does not cover all of the costs incurred on a single transport. Many insurance companies provide less than full coverage, some companies provide no coverage at all. A single emergency flight can cost as much as $7,000. If you are a member and we transport you in a life- or limb-threatening situation, we will bill your insurance company, and whatever they pay will be considered payment in full. You will not be expected to pay anything out of your own pocket. If you have no coverage for air ambulance services, you will not be billed.
With a fully equipped base and on-site staff, response time to the Fairfield/Wayne County area would be approximately 10 - 15 minutes!
Single - $40.00
Couple - $45.00
Household (3 or More) - $50.00
