The cost for a short, under 30-minute flight from one hospital to another in an emergency helicopter, can reach $50,000 or more. The use of a private jet for emergency medical transport can cost significantly more than this. For many people who are in medical need, this is not a financially feasible option, though. If you are faced with the need for this type of help, there is an alternative available to you using registered nurses. This type of service can give you the one-on-one support you need.
How the Process Works
When you use this type of emergency medical transport, the process becomes a bit more affordable and more effective. A registered nurse works closely with you to learn what the specific medical needs are. From there, the process begins with a one-on-one consultation to discuss your needs as well as provide you with support for the process. Your physician needs to sign off on approval for the process. The nursing team works closely with a commercial airline to plan your trip. You will need to fly on a major commercial airline and sit in the first class or commercial sections to ensure there is ample room and support.
During your trip, the nurse helps you throughout the travel process. This includes transporting you where you need to go through the airport and onto the plane. They help you to get to the final destination as well. This type of support ensures you can get to where you need to be without the frustrations that come with medical travel like this.
