Transportation Company Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance Services Signs Contract with Blue Cross Blue Shield
Date:7/14/2008

Air ambulance transportation company contracted as a preferred services provider.

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) July 14, 2008 -- A national contract signed with Blue Cross Blue Shield, effective July 1, 2008, makes Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance Services a preferred transportation services provider to BCBS members nationwide.

Angel MedFlight is an Arizona-based air ambulance company offering international patient transfer and medical evacuation services.

“Our new partnership with Blue Cross allows us to offer the best air ambulance transportation to even more patients,” says Angel MedFlight President and CEO Jeremy Freer. “We’re really excited to bring our level of service to so many people who need it.”

Though headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, Angel MedFlight has medically outfitted aircraft based across the country, allowing for more rapid response times to patient transport requests.

“When you’re dealing with a patient who needs to be transferred by air, time is critical,” Freer says. “Having dedicated air ambulance aircraft nationwide helps us reach more patients faster.”

Another benefit to having dedicated air ambulance aircraft based at different airports is that vacant flights are minimized, considerably reducing operating costs.

“Not having to reposition a jet to our Arizona home base significantly reduces fuel costs,” Freer says. “We’re doing all we can to reduce costs for patients without compromising quality of care, safety and service.”

The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association is an alliance of 39 independent, community-based and locally operated Blue Cross Blue Shield companies. BCBSA is the nation's oldest and largest family of health benefits companies, serving the needs of 100,000,000 – nearly one in three – Americans. Nationwide, more than 90 percent of hospitals and 80 percent of physicians contract with BCBS companies.

“Blue Cross Blue Shield patients or their case managers can call us and we’ll arrange all aspects of a transfer,” Freer says. “Our goal is to make the transport as smooth and safe as possible for everyone involved.”

Angel MedFlight has a pristine safety record, with no incidents or accidents.
