HALO-Flight Guardian Subscription Plan
As a member of SPEC, you may be able to enroll in HALO-Flight's Guardian Subscription Plan at a discounted rate. The air amublance service is available to SPEC's residential members, who meet HALO-Flight's eligability requirements, for just $1 per month. This low rate is made possible through a special billing arrangement that will allow members to pay the HALO-Flight monthly fee as a part of their SPEC monthly electric bill.
What is HALO-Flight?
HALO-Flight is a non-profit air amublance service that has served South Texas since 1987. It transports patients by air to area hospitals. These flights can cost upward of $15,000 but members of HALO-Flight are transported at no cost when the transport is deemed medically necessary. This service can be life-saving, particularly for residents of rural areas who are far from medical services. If you would like more information about the Guardian Subscription Plan or about HALO-Flight please visit their website at www.haloflight.org or contact them at 361-265-0509.
What is included in the Guardian Subscription Plan?
- Covered members are charged no out-of-pocket expenses for HALO-Flight transport deemed medically necessary.
- Coverage anywhere in HALO-Flight’s 26 county service area, and the service area of its reciprocal partner, Dallas CareFlite. (In the event that any members of the Guardian Subscription Plan require services from the reciprocal partner, they will be subject to their terms of agreement.)
- Coverage for all family members who live in the primary residence listed on the application that you submit to HALO-Flight. To qualify for membership, all residents must be listed on the application. (Includes dependent, custodial and non-custodial children.)
- A membership card for the primary member and 2 windshield decals for your cars identifying you as a member.
Note: Medicaid recipients are not eligible to join due to government regulations, however HALO-Flight does respond to Medicaid patients without cost.
