Medical bills can be astronomical. This is true whether the care involves out-patient care or more serious, emergency situations. This reality was recently discussed in a piece by the Associated Press.
The story involves a man that required urgent care. The only way to get the treatment he needed was to receive transportation through the use of an air ambulance transportation service.
Is the cost of ambulance transportation covered? Unfortunately, even if a patient has medical insurance not all the medical costs needed for care may be covered. As a result, the answer to this question depends on the language of your insurance policy and the details of the situation.
