Air medical transport services are very popular globally and are used extensively:
The air ambulance fare varies from country to country. The costs associated with the air medical evacuation services are calculated as follows:
Usually, there are 6 steps involved in the process of booking air medical evacuation services for emergency medical care. They are as follows:
1). Contacting the air ambulance service provider (by phone or any other means): When a need for urgent medical evacuation arises,a distress call is made on phone or an email sent.
2). Preparation of the medical report: A health report, which is a written document is prepared by the doctors at the request of the patient’s situation stating the patient’s condition and severity of the case.
3). Sending report to the Medevac team: The patient’s medical report gets sent to the Medevac team as part of the process after which the patient will be assigned with a designated travel doctor to establish the flight needs of the patient
4). Get a quote for the medevac: The facilitator will then engage their network of flying ambulance services to obtain the estimate and provide to the patient.
5). Hospital estimate: Once the estimate is prepared, a well experienced air ambulance facilitator will contact a good hospital at the destination, based on the condition of the patient.
6). Other requirements: Besides the above requirements, a few other issues to be borne in mind is the visa availability for the patient and companion to the destination country, ground ambulance to receive at the airport, tarmac clearance for the ground ambulance etc.
An experienced air ambulance service provider can organize all details required for the transport of a ill patient from one country to another.Is there any alternative to Air Ambulance?
In cases where the patient has time, and is short of funding, air stretcher is an alternative to air ambulance. Though not as convenient as an air ambulance it is almost at 40 – 50 % of its cost. In this case permission is sought from commercial airlines to accommodate a stretcher on a scheduled flight. Depending on the situation, the airline removes a few seats and converts it into a stretcher accommodation.
Not many airlines do this but majority of the large airlines support in this task.Why Anavara?
