Individual, Family, Group, or Business Coverage is available.
a.      Family - Covers anyone residing at the primary member’s residence, except individuals who are Medicaid recipients.

Terms

1.      Membership cannot be provided to Medicaid recipients due to state and federal regulations.
2.      Transports must be deemed medically necessary if any transport is deemed NOT medically necessary. The member will receive a 20% discount of the total billed charges, and the member is liable for the remainder of the bill after the discount.
3.      Medical necessity and mode of transport must be determined by a healthcare professional, pre-hospital health care provider, or another qualified third party recognized by Medicare.
4.      Transport will be to the closest appropriate medical facility.
5.      This membership does not include hospital neonatal helicopter transports for infants less than 28 days from birth unless previously discharged from the hospital.
6.      Newborns can be immediately added to the membership without prior notification or a waiting period if the parents have an active membership. Please notify the RAMS office to add the newborn as soon as possible.
7.      Membership is valid on the seventh day after receipt of payment, remains active for one year from that date, and is fully compliant with billing terms as outlined in the terms provided at the time of enrollment. By enrolling as a member, you accept and agree to be bound by the terms of the membership.
8.      Memberships are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Patient Responsibility

I understand that I am responsible for payment for all air medical transport services provided to me by RAMS. However, this membership will provide additional coverage as noted above. See coverage section for more details.

With any life-changing event (marriage, divorce, childbirth), please notify the RAMS office to update membership.

Renewals

Membership will remain current for one year. Before expiring, an option of membership renewal will be sent. If membership lapses, benefits are canceled. A reactivation would require a new membership and full terms to be met.

There is no grace period for benefits after the lapsed date.

Disclaimers

Transport services may not be available due to factors beyond RAM’s control, including, but not limited to: weather conditions, geographic constraints, committed to another transport, aircraft out-of-service, and patient size/weight.
