One area of healthcare that is full of abuse is the use of air
ambulances. Of course not all are included in this, but the
vast majority of them are. If fact, 80% of air ambulance
usage is for “non emergency” transport. The cost of air
ambulance has gone up over 1000 percent since the 80’s.
They are very influenced by investors who pay for them at
hospitals or just simply own them outright. It is common
for multiple helicopters to show up at one accident scene.
The cost of air ambulance not that many years ago was
less than $2,000. Today, due to the predators who have
bought into this system, the average can be well over
$25,000 and upwards of over $500,000. It is not billed to
the insurance company and can be pretty much billed
what these private companies wish. People are told to
take the flight, not allowed to have someone drive them,
take a ground ambulance etc. They then get their bill and
realize that they were “out of network’ the insurance
company pays a pittance and the rest is on the patient’s
shoulders. It is just another reason why I detest the major
medical system that doesn’t promote price transparency and
shopping for health care. I love what I do and would love
to try to help you get a better rate on health insurance
and break out of the “system” as my clients have.
