Ely—William Bee Ririe Hospital (WBRH) and Rural Health Clinic would like to announce an additional air medical transport service that is now available in White Pine County. MedX Airone membership is 100% funded through donations to the Northern Nevada EMS Consortium. WBRH is very pleased to have played a role in providing support which helped make it possible for all permanent residents of White Pine and Eureka County to receive White Pine County’s air medical membership at no cost.
MedX AirOne is not replacing American Medflight, now known as REACH. William Bee Ririe Hospital still works very closely with REACH and appreciates their years of service and continued service to our area. This additional service will simply give the ability to choose (when available or appropriate for your condition) the medical transport service that is right for you and your family’s needs. It will also give our counties a backup transport option making emergent transfers safer and more timely.
If you have insurance coverage, the reimbursement from your insurance carrier is accepted as payment in full. If you do not have insurance or your insurance is not in-network, you still will not receive a bill. Thanks to the generosity of several organizations, including WBRH, making charitable donations to the Northern Nevada EMS Consortium, your flight on MedX AirOne aircraft, when available, costs will be completely covered and you will not receive a balance bill.
There is no membership application or fees. All permanent White Pine and Eureka County residence will receive a membership card in the mail. If you have not received your membership card, or need a replacement, please contact Connie Souza, Public Relations Manager at (775)289-3216 ext. 346.
William Bee Ririe Hospital and Rural Health Clinic wishes to provide our residents every opportunity to have the availability of emergent medical transport and not have to worry about the high cost of these services.
