Some Wyoming residents have received notices saying the state has taken away their ability to purchase a membership for air ambulance service. A membership pays for an air ambulance if needed.

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services rejected a proposal that would have lowered air ambulance cost for Wyomingites.

Last year, the Wyoming Supreme Court ruled that the state can't force air ambulance companies to charge the same rate as a ground ambulance. The cost of a ride in an ambulance is about $5000 while a helicopter ride can cost nine times more.
