Angel MedFlight Provides Air Medical Transportation for Accident Victim Needing Transport from France to U.S.
Date:6/15/2009

The air ambulance company steps in once again where the insurance carrier fails

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The air ambulance company, Angel MedFlight, http://www.angelmedflight.com, is happy to report a 20-year-old, Ariel Gernes, who sustained several traumatic injuries from a multiple vehicle collision while she was visiting France, is now back in the United States receiving acute care. Angel MedFlight provided the air medical transportation after Gernes' insurance company refused to provide medical transport back to the United States.

Immediately after the accident, Gernes was taken to a level one trauma center in Clichy, France where she underwent multiple procedures including brain surgery, removal of her spleen, partial removal of her liver, chest tube placement, and many more lifesaving interventions.

As Gernes started the recovery process, her physicians discussed with the family how she would need to be transferred to a rehab facility for physical and neurological rehab, but she would not be eligible for admission into any other medical facility in France without the proper citizenship. Therefore, the family was informed there were no other options except an air ambulance flight back to the United States.

Despite having coverage for air medical transportation within her insurance policy, a directive from the attending trauma physician, and the pleading of the medical facility in France, the insurance carrier refused air medical transportation back to the United States. The denial stated, "The transport is for the convenience of the doctor, staff, or family and therefore is not medically necessary." Even after
