Commercial Medical Escort
A cost effective alternative
AeroCare offers a commercial medical escort service. For patients that are well enough to fly on a commercial flight, but still need medical supervision, AeroCare provides our international commercial medical escort program. This is ideal for a family member that needs medical support, but may not be ill enough to need to travel in a private air ambulance. The medical escort option may also be a more cost effective option for some.
How It Works
You will work with an AeroCare aeromedical case manager to determine if you can fly on a commercial aircraft with a medical escort. The case manager will review the patients condition and make the determination. Once the case manager clears the patient for a medical escort, they will then handle all of the arrangements of the commercial medical escort, including scheduling a flight, purchasing tickets, arranging ground transportation, and filing the paperwork with the airlines. The patient will be accompanied on the commercial flight by one on AeroCare's medical crew. AeroCare employs highly skilled and experienced critical care flight nurses and flight medics. If you or your patient or loved one is interested in a medical escort contact us today.
