During a medical emergency, no one wants to worry about money. However, medical care can be very expensive. Air ambulances typically transport the sickest, most critical patients. Air ambulances are operated by highly-trained personnel. Therefore, the costs for air ambulance transport can be astronomical
While ground ambulances may be the most practical for transport under 200 miles, for emergency situations, helicopters may be best for transport up to 200 miles and airplane air ambulances for transports over 200 miles.
