Fire Med Change
Dear Jefferson FireMed Member,
We are excited to introduce a new partnership that will offer additional benefits to Jefferson FireMed members. Jefferson Fire District is transitioning the management of our FireMed program to Life Flight Network, a not-for-profit Oregon-based air ambulance service. Life Flight Network manages 16 other ground ambulance membership programs in the state of Oregon. In addition to your current ground FireMed membership, you can now choose to select FireMed Plus. FireMed Plus is a combination membership with Life Flight Network, which provides the benefit of no out-of-pocket expenses for medically necessary and emergent air ambulance transports completed by Life Flight Network.
You do not need to take any action at this time. Your Jefferson FireMed membership remains valid through June 30, 2020. A renewal notice will be mailed to you approximately five weeks in advance of your membership expiration. All membership applications, payments, and renewals, regardless of benefit level, will be processed directly through Life Flight Network. Both memberships will be available to purchase for one or two-year terms. Ground membership fees will remain $60 for one year or $120 for two years of membership. Ground ambulance coverage provides coverage throughout the Jefferson Fire District ambulance service area as well as with over 80 FireMed affiliates across Oregon. If you should choose the FireMed Plus membership, the cost is only $129 for one year or $250 for two years and provides air coverage across Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and western Montana.
Jefferson Fire District continues to be available to you to answer any questions as we transition to this new partnership. You can contact Jefferson Fire District at (541) 327-2822 or Life Flight Network Membership Services at (800) 982-9299 Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Thank you for your patience as we make this transition as smooth as possible for you.
