Med-air club: Air ambulance pitches membership plan; Stark County would pay $129K
An air ambulance company pitched a deal to Stark County commissioners Tuesday that would likely be a good deal for citizens, but would cost the county a big chunk of change.
To buy a membership for all county residents, at $13.50 per household, the county’s annual cost would be $128,812. That would cover most costs of Spirit Lifeline flights for county residents, which cost about $25,000 or more.
Sometimes insurance covers part of the cost, and sometimes it doesn’t.
