Definitely.

As I suspected, there's a pretty significant price difference...$30 to $55. We're kind of spoiled, having so many members going from $45 to $30. $45 to $55, isn't that big of difference...but $30 to $55 is.

Now granted...that does cover you in 32 states, so I see the value there....but I also know the overwhelming majority has this for Rubicon and Fordyce, so 32 states is a big whoopee.

The rep promised to call me when he gets any word on those decisions. Not expecting that call tomorrow or maybe never...but after a couple months...I'll ping him.

For now....renew as normal until someone says differently.

I'll actually be happy to see coverage outside of NorCal. Whenever I go to the Hammers, or other areas in NV, SoCal, etc there is no CalStar coverage, so I'd be totally fine to pony up another $25 to get that coverage. Seriously - its $25... thats a case a Coors or a couple six packs of decent beer.

Ken,

I got the same renewal notice.

The website says a $65 membership. Are we still getting a discount with FOTR?

Doug
The Reach discount is $55 for FOTR. Let me send an email to the rep, as to what you need to do in order to get it.

If you still want CalStar, I would try....they told me they were still honoring the current CalStar discount...if that's not the case, I'd be interesting in knowing.

Got this email on Friday should clear some stuff up...

Dear Eric,

Thank you for your commitment to CALSTAR and our membership program. As you may have heard, CALSTAR will soon merge with REACH Air Medical Services, which will provide you with access to the nation's largest air ambulance membership program, the AirMedCare Network.

Once the transition to the AirMedCare Network is complete, you will receive a tremendous added value to your annual membership, including:
• Access to over 240 air ambulance locations across 32 states
• Full coverage for all medically-necessary transports provided by CALSTAR, REACH Air Medical Services, Air Evac Lifeteam and Med-Trans Corporation (all participating providers in the AirMedCare Network)
• No out-of-pocket expense in connection to your flight
• No total flight limitations
• Membership covers everyone that resides at your primary address
We are currently working through the final stages of this merger, and all members will be notified of the details once they are finalized. If you currently have a membership with both CALSTAR and REACH, please maintain your memberships with both programs during this transition period to guarantee continued protection for you and your loved ones. The next notification will be mailed to you directly by the AirMedCare Network and will include instructions on how to merge the two active memberships.

If you have any questions regarding this update, please contact our Membership Office at (888) 207-5433 or info@calstar.org. For more information on the benefits offered by the AirMedCare Network, please visit AirMedCare Network - Medical Flight Transport Service - Your Family Is Priceless or contact their office toll-free at (800) 793-0010.

Please note that as part of the impending transition, CALSTAR will no longer be eligible to accept charitable donations. For all donations received to date, we will honor our donors' wishes to apply their funds as intended. Fortunately, CALSTAR's charitable mission will live on with the establishment of a new not-for-profit foundation to benefit the public, and more details will be shared when available.

To all of our members and contributors, past and present, we are truly grateful for your incredible support of CALSTAR over the years. The good work we have accomplished together will continue to have a positive effect on the lives of many within our shared communities for years to come.

Sincerely,

Mike Nichols
Director of Development & Outreach

I got a letter from CalStar/AirMedCare today. Basically says everything in the previous post. CalStar membership transferred to AirMedCare as of Sept 1 2016. One interesting paragraph said:

"Our records indicate that you are affiliated with F.O.T.R. This group affiliation will not continue through the AirMedCare Network."

Membership price for 2017 is $65. So no more group discount but it looks like there is more coverage. You get CalStar, REACH, Air Evac Lifeteam, and Med-Trans.

Still sounds like a bargain especially covering everyone in your household.

I took a look through the membership benefits of AAA and saw they have 25k lifeflight coverage.

I finally connected with the 2nd sales rep they've had.

FOTR will have a discount of $55. As soon as I have the discount code, I will let you all know. He is planning to attend the FOTR annual meeting to answer any questions.

FYI I got a bill In the mail to renew my membership a few weeks agoand it was only $55 called and renewed yesterday they had other options on paying for more years in advance i.e. A 1 - 3 - 5 - 10 and 25 year pre pay, also they have a new (get you home plan) $130 I think that if you end up in a hospital 150 miles away they will fly you to a hospital near home.

This was on my email bill if that helps
Coupon Code: 11014-CA-BUS
