Air Methods is partnering with health insurer Anthem to offer its insurance policyholders access to Air Methods’ emergency medical services as part of their in-network health coverage benefits. The new partnership covers consumers who are enrolled in Anthem affiliated health plans in Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin.

“When our consumers and their families face a critical medical emergency that requires air transportation, we know that every moment counts, and easing the worries of a financial burden is key to helping them focus on their immediate health needs,” said Colin Drozdowski, Anthem’s Senior Vice President of Provider Solutions. “Our agreement with Air Methods to provide in-network access to emergency medical air services is another way Anthem is working to create a simpler and more affordable healthcare experience for those we have the privilege to serve.”

Air Methods operates 26 air medical bases in the five states in the agreement.
