For ages, America has been called the land of freedom and opportunities. It is one of the biggest countries in the world filled with scenic landscapes - ranging from the tallest skyscrapers and historic streets to verdant forests and sparkling deserts. With so much to do and see, the United States stands high as one of the most sought after tourist destinations in the world. The most visited American states include California, Florida, Nevada, Texas, and New York. Americans also enjoy taking foreign trips at least once a year while there are others who love to lead a backpacker’s life and visit far-flung areas on the map.
Before leaving their home country for a vacation or business trip, most Americans rarely think of the medical repatriation costs to or from the United States. But, what if you need one? Who to talk to if you had a stroke or an unfortunate accident in a foreign country? In the case of a medical emergency abroad, it is often easy to be stressed to make wrong decisions that may affect yours and your family’s future. This is why it is always recommended that you get travel insurance that provides enough cover for medical flight costs to get repatriated back home swiftly should the need arise.
When you are not in the situation to take a commercial flight to get back home, an air ambulance may be your best bet. If your travel insurance company covers the cost of medical evacuation, the cost for emergency medical flights won’t be financially draining for the US. However, if you ignored taking insurance or got insurance just for the sake of it, without reading the finer details of your insurance company’s policy, then things may get complicated.
Thankfully, all is not lost and you can still get back home in an affordable air ambulance with Medical Air Service. We are a global medical repatriation company with international offices dotted across the world to ensure help reaches you in the shortest time possible.
We are fully equipped to pick you up from most hospitals abroad and get you back home smoothly. Whether you are in a hospital in the US or in some other part of the world and wish to get back to America at the earliest, we can help with the medical evacuation.
A wide-ranging fleet of aircraft for medical flights to/from the US
We have a wide range of well-equipped airplanes, jet ambulances, and ambulance helicopters that are used as per the need of different patients and the distance to be covered. Helicopters are mainly used in critical cases to avoid the time lost in transit because these air ambulances can take off and land directly on the hospital’s roof. Some of our best medical aircrafts include Bombardier Learjet 60, Dornier 328-100, Cessna Citation 680 Sovereign, and Boeing Business Jet.
Extensive network in the US and worldwide
We have a large network due to alliances with both international airports as well as smaller domestic airports. We take off and land in the most popular and the lesser-known airports in the US, such as Athens Ben Epps Airport, Southwest Georgia Regional Airport, Orlando International Airport, Miami International Airport, and McCarran International Airport to name a few. We also have a presence in the hardest to reach areas in Africa to the less known Tonga and Vanuatu to carry out medevac services with ease.
Well-equipped air ambulances
Our air ambulances are well fitted with the medical equipment that may be needed to provide emergency care for critically ill patients. Some of the equipment are monitoring ventilator, perfusors, rescue suction unit, infusion pumps, and so on. Our medical crew accompanying the patients are well-trained on how to use the equipment if the need arises.
