The Caring Heart Membership is now available in the State of Oklahoma.

Until November 19, 2008, the State of Texas required the approval of the highest elected official before a subscription (membership) program could be offered for sale in any county. CareFlite complied with these rules and received permission in a total of 24 jurisdictions (23 counties and 1 city) to sell Caring Heart Membership. Following the receipt of a letter from the General Counsel of the Department of Transportation in Washington, DC, The Honorable Greg Abbott, Attorney General of Texas, issued an opinion that state regulation of air ambulance membership programs is preempted by the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978. Therefore CareFlite can offer its air membership program wherever it wishes. In addition to those counties/city that had previously approved the sale of the Caring-Heart Membership (Bosque, Collin, Comanche, Cooke, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Fannin, Grayson, Hill, Hood, Hunt, Jack, Johnson, Kaufman, Montague, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rockwall, Stephens, Tarrant, Wise and Young), effective 12/24/08, CareFlite has extended its membership program to the following additional counties: Somervell, Erath, Eastland, Comanche, Brown, Wichita, Archer, Clay, Hamilton, Mills, Lampasas, Coryell, McLennan, Bell, Falls, Limestone, Freestone, Anderson, Henderson, Van Zandt, Rains, Hopkins, Delta and Lamar. A copy of the Attorney General’s Opinion is shown below.
