AirMed will serve our new members in Asia with the same efficiency and unparalleled care that our current North American members enjoy,
Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) January 04, 2012
Leading U.S. air ambulance company AirMed International (http://www.airmed.com) has announced it has become the first company to sell air medical evacuation memberships in Asia. AirMed operates its own fleet of customized medical jet aircraft and offers comprehensive service to members who are hospitalized while traveling.
Before the expansion into Asia, AirMed’s annual memberships were limited to North America, but now the company’s AirMed Global offering in Asia will widen the scope of its more than 1 million current members to include travelers from Hong Kong, Macau and the People’s Republic of China (PRC).
“Asia now has more travelers than ever before. With our base in Hong Kong as well as other strategic locations worldwide, AirMed will serve our new members in Asia with the same efficiency and unparalleled care that our current North American members enjoy,” said AirMed CEO Jeffrey Tolbert.
Hong Kong, Macau and PRC residents can choose from four different AirMed Global membership plans designed to cover individuals, students and families on an annual basis.
AirMed Global membership includes air medical transport when the member is hospitalized more than 300km from home. AirMed Global members pay no out-of-pocket costs or co-pays; there are no financial limitations and no ‘medical necessity’ requirements. An AirMed membership uniquely brings patients to the hospital of their choice, not to the “nearest appropriate facility” as is the case of most travel insurance programs, health plans and premium card services.

AirMed offers plans in North America and Asia for individuals, families, students studying abroad and can even customize pricing for corporations who wish to cover their employees.
