Air Evac Lifeteam and Centralhatchee team up for local residents

From The Times-Journal

(Centralhatchee) — Mayor Barbie Crockett and the Town of Centralhatchee City Council members recently voted to providing the city’s residents with peace of mind when it comes to air medical service.

Missy Welborn, membership sales manager for the Troup County, Ga., Air Evac Lifeteam base, said the Centralhatchee Mayor and Council members made it possible for every family in the city to receive an Air Evac membership.

If Centralhatchee residents are flown for a life-or-limb threatening emergency by Air Evac Lifeteam from Heard County, Ga., they are covered by the Air Evac Lifeteam membership.

A mailer explaining the details of the membership will be sent within 30 days to all residents.

In order to be eligible for this membership, a family must reside within the city limits. For a $35 upgrade fee, families living in Centralhatchee would be covered no matter where their Air Evac Lifeteam flight originates.

Residents who are not insured will be billed at the Medicare allowable rate if they choose not to upgrade.

Because Air Evac Lifeteam is part of the AirMedCare Network, residents are covered by more than 245 bases in 32 states.

Air Evac Lifeteam, headquartered in O’Fallon, Mo., is the largest independently owned and operated air medical service in the country, serving as the critical link to improved response time and immediate access to medical care facilities.

Air Evac Lifeteam has 126 bases in 15 states.
