What med helo provider serves CMP?
« on: September 28, 2020, 12:34:45 AM »

Anybody know who flies us out should the need arise?
I’m looking into AirMedCare, and the closest affiliate is:
South Carolina Air Care - Rotor Wing
Med-Trans
2945 Airport Road, Sumter, SC 29153

If there is another air-evac insurance group I should be looking at instead in order to have me covered at CMP especially but others as well, can you let me/us know?

Thanks in advance!

Kerry, the only insurance I'm aware of that will make sure you are covered is MASA. With them you are covered anywhere in the world. I looked into Air Med a few years back and it seems like most of the places where we go weren't in their network. I don't know what company specifically flies into to CMP but they fly to the hospital in Columbia so you might be able to figure it out from that.

Thanks, John! I will look into this further. I'm thinking with just one weekend left, if Air Med would work at CMP, it's worth it even for one weekend. Then I could consider MASA for next year. These places sure are skimpy on the info they make available online!

Carey,

 If you have TRICARE PRIME and your condition requires helicopter ride they will pay it. Obviously, the track EMS would make that decision vice a land ride.

 It’s on the TRICARE website.

 BTW, I miss you guys and hope to see you next season!

Thanks, Mike! Hope we get to see you soon as well!

I did find that the units that serve CMP are not among those listed as being part of the AirMedCare network. I chatted with Michael Jr. at CMP, and he indicated the following:
“Lifenet 2 is our primary air transport company and they operate from the airport in Camden.
 800 327 2611 is their contact number.
As a secondary, we have Aircare from Sumter SC. 855 654 3551 is their contact number.”

So, I’ll check into TriCare as well before I quit looking further and go with MASA after all   Embarrassment
