Since our hospital has been bought out by the Methodist System we "I use the word we loosley" have an air life helicopter on duty all time. I saw a post from a woman who had to use it and her bill was a staggering amount. However I understand there is an insurance a person can buy to cover a trip on it. It is a pretty piece of transportation but I hope we never have a need for it. We pass it most every day and on the rare occasion the choppers are turning getting ready to lift up I say a prayer for the person who is waiting for this expensive ride.
