BOCA RATON, FL (November 3, 2016) – CoreChoice, the national specialty network for radiology
and interventional pain management services announced today new specialty network services
for medical air transportation through a comprehensive agreement signed with Alacura.
The agreement provides a prospective scheduling model, whereby CoreChoice clients will be able
to schedule credentialed medical air transport service for both rotary and fixed wing aircraft
services as well as associated ground services on a 24/7/365 basis at a significant discount.
The agreement also establishes a retrospective model, which will resolve bills for flights that
have already taken place.
“The addition of Alacura’s services will greatly assist both insurance carriers and patients, where
medical air transport is necessary so that treatment not readily available at one location can be
quickly and safely provided at another location and within cost parameters of the patient’s medical
coverage,” said Dr. Steven Gass, CEO of CoreChoice. “Medical insurance case managers will now
have a service that is reliable and expeditious. Alacura is the ‘easy button’ and a one call solution.”
The CoreChoice – Alacura agreement will primarily service mid-market group health plans and
workers’ compensation insurance sectors. Under the program, Alacura will provide both national
and international air medical transportation services through its credentialed network of rotary and
“Medical transportation is extremely expensive and fragmented but does not have to be,” said David
Boone, Alacura’s CEO. “Alacura provides expert management of medical transportation services to
improve the experience for patients and streamlines coordination of services for health plans and
transportation providers while reducing costs. We make it easy for the patient and family, case
managers, and the sending and receiving facilities.”
As the leading medical transportation benefits management company (MTBM), Alacura coordinates
the determination of benefits, eligibility and medical necessity for the patient; orchestrates the end
to-end logistics of the transport mission through its network of highly credentialed providers; and
manages the claim process, all while improving the member experience and reducing the cost of the
transportation. Alacura drives savings, simplification, and safety to both payors and their plan
