“Membership in Air Ambulance Card eliminates concerns about the high cost of a medical flight. International flights can cost as much as $150,000. Members can come home to the Carolinas aboard a MedCenter Air jet and never receive a bill for the transport,” said Stan Bradley, managing director of Air Ambulance Card.

Air Ambulance Card memberships are available to residents of the U.S. and Canada and cost $195 per year for individuals and $295 per year for families.
