Does anyone know who is going to provide advanced life support services this year? CrowdRx has no mention of BM their page anymore. Thanks.

Do you mean, who is going to be operating the emergency air evacuation service?

If this is the question that you are asking; in past years, it has been published in Jack Rabbit Speaks about a month before the burn in the notice that contains all the safety stuff.

In the past, it has cost $25.00 to become a member. And, that is a lot less than $40,000 if you are not a member.

I heard that an RFP went out for medical services, but that CrowdRX will probably get the contract again.

I called my own health insurance carrier and checked to see if emergency helicopter transport was covered, and it IS covered on my plan. It may be worth checking with your insurance company to see if it's part of your plan.

Thanks, that's what I'm interested in knowing, which company will be providing advanced life support services.
