All AHF members in good stranding benefit from our long term association with facilities such as North Shore LIJ Health System, Deborah Hospital Foundation, Brookdale Hospital, Calvary Hospital, and others. Should you need rapid admission to any of these facilities, AHF makes a difference.
From time to time some Pythians say, "Who needs AHF, because I got this terrific HMO?"
Let AHF tell you what it has done. A national HMO, a Pythian Lodge, and several not-for-profit organizations could not help a Florida Pythian couple place their son in a specialized medical institution to save his life. Immediate help was needed, and the life-saving time element measured a day or two. In about 12 hours after the call was made to AHF, an ambulance medical team from Deborah Hospital picked up the son, sped him to their hospital, and life-saving treatment began immediately with success.
AHF offers exclusive entree to urgent medical treatment where we may not depend on our health insurer.
If you do not already belong, join now.
The membership year runs from January 1 to December 31 and you must be a currently active member of AHF to receive its benefits.
Membership is $18/ BASIC, $25/SILVER, $40/BRONZE and $60 for GOLD.
