AeroMD Air Ambulance works with many insurance carriers
AeroMD works with many medical insurances, Medicare and Medicaid to minimize or eliminate out-of-pocket costs for patients. This is a major difference from other air ambulance providers, which often turn away patients insured only by government programs. As part of the company’s commitment to the medically-underserved region– AeroMD does not bill copays, deductibles or balance bills to its members for services rendered in the Caribbean Basin.
Self-payment is also an option for patients who may not have insurance, or simply wish to forego standard procedures at island hospitals. AeroMD’s team of medical professionals and air medical communicators can streamline the medevac process most expediently in such situations. For self-pay patients, there is increased flexibility on destination medical facilities. This depends on the urgency of the medical situation, location of the best-suited specialty center, bed availability at the destination facility, and where a patient has family / companion support. The option of self-payment may be most helpful for those who “snowbird” in the Caribbean during season, but reside elsewhere for the majority of the year.
As new members complete the AeroMD membership process, they simply submit health insurance information to confirm eligibility. Most private insurance carriers are accepted, including CIGNA and UnitedHealthcare. AeroMD asks that members contact their main office should health insurance change during active membership.
No matter the health insurance or financial situation, the AeroMD team encourages patients or their companions to call 1-844-AeroMD1 or request a flight when medical evacuation is needed. AeroMD offers financing options thanks to a partnership with American Healthcare Financing and always attempts to assist a patient by any means possible. Please contact local emergency services first, calling 911 or the local equivalent for immediate assistance. Once a patient has been stabilized, the AeroMD global command center can manage the medevac flight process from initial call to wheels-up.
AeroMD Air Ambulance serves our neighbors throughout the Caribbean and worldwide.
