Got this email on Friday should clear some stuff up...
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 [email protected]
. 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.
