Town of Seabrook Island, SC, Signs Agreement to
Provide Membership to Residents
“SEABROOK ISLAND, SC – August 30, 2016 – The Town of Seabrook Island, South Carolina, has entered into an agreement
with Meducare Air, an air ambulance provider, extending county-wide membership benefits to residents.
Even with medical insurance, an air ambulance transport may leave patients and their families with unexpected out-of-pocket
expenses. In the event a Town of Seabrook Island, South Carolina, resident is flown by Meducare Air, or any
AirMedCare Network participating provider, for a life- or limb-threatening emergency from within Charleston County
South Carolina, that AMCN-participating air medical service will work with that resident’s insurance provider to secure
payment for the flight. Whatever the resident’s insurance provider pays is considered payment in full. If the resident
transported is uninsured at the time of transport, Med-Trans Corporation will bill the resident at the “Medicare
Allowable Rate” for the transport.
Seabrook Island residents may also take advantage of upgrading to a full AirMedCare Network Membership at a
discounted rate, to gain full coverage with no pickup location or insurance coverage restrictions.
Meducare Air is a participating provider in the AirMedCare Network, the largest air ambulance membership network in the
the United States. AirMedCare Network participating providers have more than 260 air medical bases across 32 states,
providing air ambulance services for residents who suffer a life-or limb-threatening illness or injury.
