Considerations of Cross Country Non-Emergency Medical Transportation
Considerations of Long Distance Medical Transportation
If you are searching for a long distance non-emergency medical transport of around 200 or more miles for a patient who is currently in a home health care facility, assisted living facility, nursing home, rehabilitation center, cancer treatment center, or is being discharged from a hospital in stable medical condition then you have found the right medical transportation service for you.
It is important to choose the right method of long distance medical transportation whether it be for yourself or one of your loved ones. You or someone close to you may be a non-ambulatory elderly individual or a patient suffering from a debilitating medical condition that requires professional medical transportation services.
If you need medical transportation services, the first step is to speak with your doctor about the particular medical needs your condition will require during transport. If it is determined by your doctor that you or your loved one’s medical condition does not present a need for advanced life support and that there is no need for any invasive medical interventions to be performed during the non-emergency long distance medical transport then you or your loved one is a potential candidate for long distance non-emergency medical transportation services.

Non-Emergency Long Distance Ground Medical Transportation is More Cost Effective
When considering different options for non-emergency long distance medical transportation it is important to learn about the available methods of medical transportation so that you can make an informed decision. The three most common methods are by air ambulance, ground ambulance transport, and non-emergency transport vehicle.
Many factors go into deciding what transportation method suits your specific needs best. We at Long Distance Medical Transport believe that the most important factors are related to safety, comfort, peace of mind, and financial costs. In recognition of this, we have built our services with these concepts in mind.
We understand that you will likely have to pay out of pocket because non-emergency long distance medical transports are rarely covered by insurance. That is why we tailor our services to fit the specific needs of a non-emergency long distance medical transport. Our non-emergency medical transport service is exactly that. Meaning we tailored our services with a complete focus on non-emergency medical conditions to better bring you the most cost effective, safe, and comfortable long distance medical transportation service when compared to air ambulances and ground ambulance services.
We Believe That Sometimes Less Can be More..
Air medical transportation appears very attractive at first glance but the financial costs are near triple the amount that ground transportation with Long Distance Medical Transport would cost you. Ambulance companies often charge twice the amount to perform a non-emergency long distance medical transport. The ambulance service costs much more because they are employing unnecessary use of emergency medical equipment and vehicles to service non-emergency medical conditions. These ambulances are large hard-riding diesel burning trucks that have very bad fuel economy. These ambulances were designed for short emergency based patient transportation and were never intended to transport patients over hundreds of miles.
If you have a non-emergency condition then you do not require the extra precautions packaged into the cost of your service. We have formed a service that limits what is unnecessary by evaluating the basic factors above in relation to the types of non-emergency medical conditions we transport.
Whether you are seeking long distance transportation for an elderly, disabled, or terminally ill patient, Long Distance Medical Transport has developed a non-emergency medical transportation service that is customized to serve your unique needs.
