Did You Know It Costs $30,000 If You Get Transported Off Playa Via MedEvac?!?
The most expensive ride on the playa is the one you never want to take: an emergency medical transport to one of the Reno hospitals. Even if you have insurance, it still might leave you with a bill for several thousand dollars, since most insurance doesn’t cover 100% of medical costs. Of course it is considerably worse if you have no insurance at all!
Every year, it seems, we hear a story or two of a Burner who gets airlifted off playa only to practically need to be resuscitated again when they receive their bill months later. Given that only an unlucky few get airlifted each year, chances are good you’ll never need it, but if you have a complicated pre-existing condition or you are a good little scout and believe in preparedness, it’s worth considering a $50 membership from CrowdRX.
