Guam – CareJet has announced that it is set to begin sales of a new air ambulance Membership Plan called MyLife.
For the cost of the plan, critically ill or injured members will have access to air medical transportation in a medically configured jet to the nearest facility capable of treating their condition.
MyLife was created to make air ambulance more affordable to Guam’s middle and upper-middle classes. These two population segments have struggled most to cope with the hefty expense of air medical evacuation.
According to Marc Decoste, CareJet’s Program Director: “The Medically Indigent Program has mostly covered the cost of air ambulance for Guam’s low-income households. Conversely, high net-worth individuals have been able to absorb these costs fairly well. Unfortunately, middle-class families are the ones who have had to either accept the loss of a loved one or suffer financial ruin.”
With the only civilian hospital operating at near or full capacity on a regular basis, and with known limitations in treating certain life-threatening illnesses locally, CareJet felt now was the perfect time to launch the MyLife initiative.
The plans will be sold on the CareJet website and at their offices in Tiyan. The Solo Membership is expected to cost $375.00 per year, while the Family Membership is expected to cost $575.00 for a family of four (both payable on a monthly basis).
