Air Ambulance: Medical Necessity or Convenience?

Despite substantially higher costs, the use of air medical transportation can improve clinical outcomes when compared to traditional, ground-based transportation. A common challenge that payers confront is distinguishing when it is a medical necessity and when it is a convenience. 

AllMed’s Medical Director Dr. David Spiro led an interactive discussion with panelists Dr. Andy Barnett and Dr. Eric Diamond during which they explored the medical necessity of air medical transportation. This webinar covered typical air medical transportation scenarios, reviewed finding from an IRR quality review and discussed key factors that help established when using an air ambulance is medically necessary.
