Navigating the Complexities of a Medical Crisis away from home…
Travelers must accept that they are not immune to injury or illness—it’s just that simple. There has been no shortage of media coverage of travelers who have found themselves experiencing a medical crisis far from home. The hospital and medical costs are staggering and have had financial repercussions. When the challenges become overwhelming and decision-making seems too difficult to manage, having an advocate will make a critical difference for you and your family.
Having provided customized solutions for many years, Angels of Flight recognized the process could be streamlined when travelers do some advanced planning. The HALO MEDCARD PROGRAM provides a backup plan that renders immediate assistance. We collect, maintain and manage your health data in an innovative and secure environment that is HIPAA compliant so that you have what you need when you need it. Not only will precious time be saved, but you have interpretation resources in over 200 languages. If you’ve never thought about what you would do in a medical crisis away from home, you’re not alone. Most of us think “nothing will even happen to me”. When the unexpected happens, you want to know that immediate assistance is only one phone call away, regardless of time zones.
While there is no “one-size-fits-all” rule, having an advocate is a lifeline of hope and indispensible when you feel no one is listening. It’s tough to go it alone. Highly experienced Aeromedical Consultants, who are Registered Nurses, can identify and overcome the obstacles you face and help you navigate the healthcare maze.
