BV SnowSports Foundation has negotiated a group rate with AirMedCare which includes CalStar and Reach Air as well as PHI CARES. These are the three helicopter MedEvac operators serving Bear Valley and the Highway 4 corridor. Any one of these companies may respond based on availability at the time of the emergency. Memberships in these MedEvac programs provide the assurance that there will be no additional charge to you beyond what your insurance company covers in the event you require air ambulance services provided by the organizations with which you are a member. These programs are not insurance providers and do not cover other medevac operators with whom they do not have reciprocal agreements. Please check the conditions of each provider at their respective websites indicated below. The group rate for BVSF members is $65 per year per family each for AirMedCare and $40 for PHI. BVSF members can apply either online or by mail using the forms available on each providers website. Membership in both of these programs is $105 and will provide coverage for your immediate family at Bear Valley and any other location where these providers operate.
