Payors and networks nationwide are searching for a solution that will provide high quality care for their members without the egregious rates and out-of-pocket expenses charged by many ambulance companies. By creating end-to-end coordination between healthcare facilities, transportation providers, payors/insurance companies, and patients, Alacura provides cost savings to both the plan and the member while increasing efficiencies throughout the transport process. We provide concierge level service to members, consultation and review services providing consistency in medical necessity and benefit determinations, and assurance that ambulance providers meet the highest clinical standards in the industry. We are proud to have the opportunity to work closely with each client to offer these services to their members and their contracted providers.
