WHY IS AIR MEDICAL TRANSPORT AN OUTSTANDING OPTION FOR WORLDWIDE AIR AMBULANCE TRANSPORTATION?
With its Worldwide Network Alliance, Air Medical Transport can offer multiple carrier options and choose the best positioned, medically configured quality air carrier to respond promptly to each patient’s needs. This approach ensures more efficiency and minimizes the time required to respond, making Air Medical Transport an outstanding choice for air ambulance transportation.
It’s all about the right quality service with aircraft availability and right positioning at the time of service.
Air Medical Transport offers many different air ambulance aircraft options for each mission and route. Other companies will always provide their clients with the aircraft and service they exclusively handle, whereas we provide more options based on our client’s needs and requirements when choosing our service.
Here is an example: A US Citizen vacationing in Vienna, Austria (LOWW) had been recently hospitalized and stabilized with a fractured hip from a fall. He cannot safely fly via a commercial airline. His medical insurance does not cover his treatment overseas. He is looking for a prompt air ambulance transport back home to his medical specialist for surgery in Los Angeles, CA (KLAX).
From the time, a North American-based provider has the availability for transport. They will have to gather a rested team, dispatch the aircraft, reposition the plane, then rest the pilots and crew for at least 10 to 12 hrs. before being able to receive the patient in Vienna, Austria (LOWW) for transport. Theoretically, it can take them at least 48 to 72hrs to position the plane to receive the patient for transport. Based on the patient’s medical needs, requirements, and timing for each mission.
Based on our air ambulance network availability, we could arrange air ambulance transportation with any of our quality providers available near Vienna, Austria (LOWW), which are much closer and can respond quicker for this specific case.
Air Medical Transport offers clients all available options and utilizes the best-positioned, medically configured quality air carrier (holding EASA and FAA certificates issued under 14 CFR Part 135).
Basic Life Support (BLS) includes the provision of basic medically necessary supplies and services with Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). BLS requires knowledge and skills in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), using automated external defibrillators (AED), providing oxygen therapy, and relieving airway obstructions in patients of all ages.
BLS ambulance transports provide necessary pre-hospital, post-hospital, and non-emergency medical care transportation for critical, non-critical, and emergent patients not requiring cardiac monitoring. EMTs have the essential knowledge and skills needed to stabilize and safely transport patients ranging from non-emergency and routine medical transports to life-threatening emergencies. EMTs’ function as part of a comprehensive EMS response system, while under medical oversight. EMTs perform interventions with the necessary equipment typically found on an ambulance. EMTs are an essential link between the scene of an emergency as well as the health care system.
Everyday BLS transport situations include:
- Medical and surgical patients not requiring advance interventions or cardiac monitoring
- Discharge to home or sub-acute care facilities (nursing homes, rehabilitation, assisted living facilities)
- Psychiatric patients not requiring chemical restraints
Most BLS Transports in the world, are capable of handling essential life support interventions. These interventions include but are not limited to; Manual resuscitation via bag valve mask, oxygen therapy via nasal cannula, mask, non-rebreather, nebulizer, standard suctioning, pulse oximetry, splinting, bandaging, spinal immobilization, and automated external defibrillation. BLS Transports do not include advance interventions such as advanced airway, mechanical ventilation, intravenous therapy, and cardiac monitoring. EMTs’ capabilities on BLS transports may vary depending on the local laws established by each country and their state department of health laws where the transfer takes place.

AIR AMBULANCE INSURANCE REIMBURSEMENT PROGRAM
Going through an insurance policy can be a daunting challenge. Too often, it leaves the client without a straightforward nor definitive answer whether an air ambulance is medically necessary and covered guaranteed service. When other means of transport are contraindicated, and a patient needs air ambulance transportation for a medical necessity, the last thing a patient or family member wants to worry about is whether or not it will be covered under their medical insurance.
When there is coverage for air ambulance transport, it is crucial to determine if the air ambulance is deemed medically necessary. Insurance companies will typically approve a claim to a higher level of care, closest available facility, or closest specialist by the most appropriate and least expensive mode of transport. Domestic private insurance companies typically do not cover international transportation or medical repatriation transport unless specifically included in the patient’s policy.
Preauthorization of Benefits
At Air Medical Transport, we always recommend having our billing specialist verify and obtain prior authorization from private insurance before transport. This task sometimes takes days, depending on the medical necessity documentation provided and the processing speed of the insurance company. We understand that many times due to the necessity to transport urgently, this is only sometimes practical and possible.
We can submit a formal preauthorization when the following information from the sending or receiving facility is on hand:
- Patient’s fact sheet with demographics and insurance information
- A detailed and descriptive signed statement from the physician in charge delineating the medical necessity for an air ambulance to the specific destination facility and stating the medical reasons why other modes of transportation are contraindicated.
- Certificate of medical necessity completed and documented form.
- Sending physician and sending facility NPI numbers
- Medical diagnostic ICD10 code number(s)
- Any additional medical record confirming the medical necessity for air ambulance transport to the specific destination facility or specialist as opposed to the closest location with the appropriate bed availability.
Our billing specialists perform the steps necessary to get air ambulance insurance reimbursements after the transport. If coverage is denied or only partially approved, our team has the expertise to appeal the insurance company’s decision. We will relentlessly continue to pursue payment until the end. At the same time, our clients can focus on their loved ones and not be distracted by insurance frustrations. If our clients have coverage in their policies and their trip was deemed necessary, rest assured that Air Medical Transport will protect their rights to air ambulance benefits!
AIR AMBULANCE TRANSPORTATION EMPTY LEG PROGRAM
In aviation terms, Empty leg or back-haul refers to a “repositioning flight” when the airplane and team are sent out from or back to its base without any passengers.
Like the example below: Someone booked an international air ambulance mission from Houston, TX (KHOU) to Rome, Italy (LIRF). After the transport in Rome, Italy, is completed, the returning flight leg from Rome, Italy (LIRF) back to base in Houston, TX (KHOU) becomes available for sale. In this case, the empty leg was the return flight from Rome, Italy (LIRF) to Teterboro, NJ (KTEB), which matched the planned route by 75%. After completing the second transport at Teterboro, NJ (KTEB), the team returns to Houston, TX (KHOU) base.
The Empty Leg Program was designed to save our clients money. The extra discount for a booked empty leg will depend on how closely the empty leg matches the transportation needed. The closer to a perfect match, the higher the discount will be.
Air Medical Transport makes every effort to match a second patient for the same aircraft to return to the same origin or close to the planned repositioning route.
If domestic or international air ambulance transport is not emergent and our client can provide a flexible date range for transportation, please let our flight coordinators know to include your information on our empty leg program. The empty legs usually become available on short notice, sometimes 24 to 48hrs. Suppose the route needed matches with a repositioning flight empty leg. In that case, our client could get a substantially discounted flight by booking a matching empty leg.
