TRANS AERO MEDEVAC TO OFFER AUTOMATIC MEMBERSHIPS TO EDDY COUNTY RESIDENTS

EDDY COUNTY, NEW MEXICO, November 10, 2021- Effective immediately, all residents of Eddy County are automatically enrolled in the Trans Aero Medevac Membership program! 

Provided in collaboration with the city of Artesia, a Trans Aero MedEvac membership ensures that, should an emergency medical transportation flight be necessary, residents’ insurance/third party payment will be accepted with no additional out-of-pocket expense to them. This will only apply to flights operated by Trans Aero MedEvac and will be subject to certain state rules. Limitations may be found at transaeromedevac.org/membership-enrollment.   

The company, which currently has two helicopters based in the county, was founded with a mission to deliver the most advanced patient care in the industry. Consistent with its goal of quality, all aircraft are staffed with an Advanced Practice Provider, as well as a Certified Paramedic. They also carry lifesaving whole blood and liquid plasma, as well as specialized equipment, such as ultrasound and ventilators, to deliver appropriate critical care to all patients. 

Trans Aero MedEvac will be working with local community leadership, hospitals, and fire departments to rapidly spread the message that each citizen of Eddy County now has this benefit.  Information will also be sent out to residents, outlining the advantages they will receive from a membership.  

Charlie Nolen, Assistant Program Director, said of the announcement: “Trans Aero MedEvac is proud to serve the region with the highest level of critical care, and, through this partnership with the city of Artesia, to alleviate the stress typically associated with a post-flight medical bill.” 

Trans Aero MedEvac is an air medical transport company formed in the principals of excellence in aviation safety and clinical medicine. In business since 1966, Trans Aero LTD primarily focused on heli-firefighting activities, as well as contracted helicopter services and maintenance. In 2016, they joined forces with EMSRx, a company known for clinical excellence and support services, to bring a quality focus back to air medicine.
