Who Could Benefit From a Medical Escort Service? A Closer Look

Who Could Benefit From a Medical Escort Service? A Closer Look

Medical escorts are non-emergency healthcare services offered to people with certain medical conditions. For example, if you’re unable or unwilling to take a regular flight because of the hospital equipment that has to fly with you, a medical escort can help.

Is it a good service? Should you look into it? Do you quality? Here are just a few types of people who should consider medical escorts.

  • If you were injured during international travel, a medical escort can be a safe and inexpensive way to bring you back home. The cost of being airlifted out of the country is more than some people can afford, but a medical escort will cost much less.
  • If you have injuries that are major enough to require special care but minor enough that they can be handled by nurses instead of doctors, you might benefit from the international travel nursing offered by medical escorts.
  • If you want to travel with your family, medical escorts can often get you on a commercial flight. They’ll just reserve several seats in the back of the plane and convert them into a stretcher space. Your family members will only be a few rows away.
  • If you aren’t on a tight schedule, medical escorts can work with you over the course of several days or weeks to figure out the prime opportunity to move you. They can make all of the arrangements for tickets, medications, CPR equipment and whatever else that you might need. They can also get in touch with the hospital at your destination site and arrange for your transportation there.
