Dick and Elizabeth Power of Vidalia, Louisiana were enjoying a summer trip in Yellowstone National Park. While out on a tour, Mr. Power found himself struggling to breathe. He was taken to the Old Faithful Clinic where the staff saw a possibility of cardiac stress and hypoxia. When they saw his EKG, they realized their patient needed specialized care beyond what they could offer.
With no time to waste, the doctors requested air transport. Within minutes, the AMCN provider REACH was headed their way. With the crew’s quick and caring attention, Mr. Power made it to Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital, a certified Level III Trauma Center.
Because AirMedCare Network members pay no out-of-pocket expense for a flight by any of the network’s providers, the cost of their transport was covered by their membership!
Luckily, they found Mr. Power was not having a heart attack, but the staff kept him overnight to ensure he remained stable and he was released the next day. His wife Elizabeth was worried about the cost of their emergency flight. At one point she thought, “I wish this happened in Louisiana where we have Air Evac Lifeteam air ambulance membership.” Air Evac Lifeteam is an AirMedCare Network provider, as was the REACH helicopter in Bozeman that transported Mr. Power. Because AirMedCare Network members pay no cost for a flight by any of the network’s providers, the cost of their transport was covered by their membership!
