Commercial Medical Escort
A cost-effective alternative
AeroCare offers commercial medical escort services for patients that may not require a full air ambulance but still require medical supervision in a commercial flight environment. AeroCare provides these services for all domestic and international commercial flights. The medical escort option is a more cost-effective option when the patient is able to fly in this manner.
How It Works
An AeroCare Case Manager will work with you to determine if your patient can fly safely on a commercial aircraft by working with our Medical Department and reviewing the patient’s medical condition to make this determination. Once the patient has been cleared for medical escort transport, the Case Manager will coordinate and arrange all of the details including; scheduling an appropriate commercial flight, purchasing tickets, arranging ground transportation, and filing the necessary paperwork with the airlines.
During the commercial flight, the patient will be accompanied by AeroCare’s highly skilled medical crew members (Registered Nurse, Respiratory Therapist and/or Paramedic) who have been trained extensively in altitude and physiology as well as safety within that environment. If you or your patient or loved one is interested in a medical escort contact us today.
