LifeMed Alaska Membership FAQ
How does membership work?
Medical emergencies happen every day without warning. If EMS or health care providers determine air medical transport by LifeMed Alaska is needed, your LifeMed Alaska Membership protects you and your family from having any out-of-pocket expenses.
Won’t My Health Insurance Cover Emergency Medical Transportation?
Life-saving air medical transportation can be expensive and your health insurance will likely not cover the entire bill for a medical transport. Think about how much your co-pay is when you visit your doctor or need to get a prescription filled – whether it’s $20 or 20%, it’s an insignificant amount compared to a medevac. The patient responsibility for a medevac flight to Seattle could be $20,000. LifeMed Alaska works directly with your insurance company and accepts their reimbursement as payment-in-full for our members.
I Don’t Have Healthcare Insurance. Why Can’t I Become a Member?
LifeMed Alaska will always perform a medically-necessary transport regardless of the patient’s ability to pay. In fact, LifeMed has a charity care program in place to cover uninsured patients whose incomes do not exceed 400% above the Alaska poverty level. If you do not have healthcare insurance and do not qualify for our charity program, then you will be billed for our services.
Who Can Be in My “Household” Membership?
A household is defined as the Primary Member, spouse or domestic partner, and dependent children who reside at the same physical residence. Newborns are automatically LifeMed Alaska members but require notification to LifeMed Alaska within 30 days from the date of birth to continue coverage. Elderly or disabled family members living in the same household can also be added to your membership, or they can apply for their own.
Is the LifeMed Alaska Membership Guaranteed?
