Nebraska Farm Bureau Partners with AirMedCare Network for Membership Savings
LINCOLN, NEB. –Nebraska Farm Bureau has partnered with the AirMedCare Network to offer Nebraska Farm Bureau members the opportunity to join the
AirMedCare Network membership program at a special “members-only” discounted rate, said Del Ficke, director of membership services for Nebraska Farm Bureau. AirMedCare Network is America's largest air medical membership network, providing the highest levels of care and access for you, your family and your community.
The average cost nationally of an air medical flight is typically $25,000. The standard yearly cost of joining the AirMedCare Network is $65 a year. But as a Nebraska Farm Bureau member you can purchase this service for only $55 per household, per year, Ficke said. Discounts are also available on multi-year memberships.
“Join Nebraska Farm Bureau today and you can receive valuable savings from the AirMedCare Network. This service gives you membership across four leading air ambulance operators for the price of one! Air Link and EagleMed (based in Scottsbluff) are part of AirMedCare Network in Nebraska. They understand the critical aspect of time in treating medical emergencies, and for those who would use this service, time is of the essence. That is why this partnership will bring real value to Farm Bureau members all across Nebraska,” Ficke said.
A membership in the AirMedCare Network ensures a member has no out-of-pocket expenses related to their flight, if flown by a participating AMCN provider. With the addition of the statewide agreement in the great state of Nebraska, AMCN now partners with nine other Farm Bureau member-states including Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Iowa, Alabama, Kansas, Oklahoma, Indiana and Texas.
“We are blessed to have a great relationship with the Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation and it is all built around being an additional resource to serve those communities where we have our air ambulance bases - like Nebraska” said Keith Hovey, Vice President of the AirMedCare Network. “We are committed to the communities we serve, facilitating great care in the folk’s critical time of need, and great relationships in the markets that we share.”
As a Nebraska Farm Bureau member, AirMedCare Network gives you many different choices. You can buy a yearly membership, or lock in the savings with a three, five, or ten year plan. Farm Bureau members receive the savings.
“The AirMedCare Network will work with your benefits provider to secure payment for your flight. Whatever your benefits provider pays will be considered payment in full. It’s that simple. We are proud to offer our Nebraska Farm Bureau members this great benefit with our new partner AirMedCare Network,” Ficke said.
The Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation is a grassroots, statewide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service and advocacy efforts. More than 57,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
