* Eligibility: (1) Medicaid recipients are not eligible to join due to government regulations; however, HALO-Flight does respond to Medicaid patients regardless of their ability to pay. (2) Before joining this Guardian Subscription Plan, NEC Members should review the coverage maps for HALO-Flight and its partners to determine if plan services are available in their area.
**Medically Necessary: HALO-Flight Guardian Subscription Plan benefits are restricted to medically necessary services defined as a specific need for emergent helicopter air ambulance transport within our service area. The specific need must meet the Regional Advisory Council Bypass Protocol or diagnosis from a physician that determines an alternative form of transportation would be medically inappropriate regarding the patient condition. It is NOT for the convenience of a Provider, Physician, or Patient. HALO-Flight has the right to deny any request that is inappropriate based upon medical necessity or suspected memberships abuse. If abuse is found to exist, HALO-Flight reserves the right to terminate membership.
*In the event that any members of the Guardian Subscription Plan require services from one of our reciprocal partners, they will be subject to their terms of agreement.
