Responders on the RCVFD Quick Medical Response Team (QRT) will be the first to tell you a helicopter can save your life unlike any other resource we have. The trip from our most remote location to the level 1 Trauma center (MCR) is about 15min and when seconds count this can be a blessing. But the exspense is also unlike any other resource we have, over $15,000 for that 15 min flight. Many insurance companies will not pay for the flight, others only partially pay. It is for this reason we ask you to check with your medical insurnace provider find out more information and if needed contact AirMedCare Network and talk to them about their membership.
