What if I need to be transported to another city for heart surgery? Doesn’t Medicare pay?

Medicare’s view is that we have heart surgeons available at our local hospitals. Medicare reimburses to the closest facility that has cardiologists or heart surgeons available, thus many times not paying for the transport or only partial mileage. LifeNet Subscribers with Medicare or private insurance will be transported with no out of pocket expense to hospitals within our 500 mile radius (which includes Dallas, Houston, Little Rock, Shreveport and Tyler)
