Angel MedFlight Expands Options for Transplant Patients
Organ transplants save lives, but some patients can wait for years for a match. Some families are even forced to relocate to be close to a transplant center. Angel MedFlight is dedicated to expanding the options for organ transplant patients by providing safe, long-distance air medical transport solutions.
We work with patients and transplant professionals to develop comprehensive Transplant Travel Plans in advance to save valuable time when an organ is offered. Our in-house, patient advocacy team works with insurance companies to verify patients’ flight benefits and to pre-authorize transplant flights when possible, minimizing patients’ out-of-pocket expenses.
With access to a fleet of medically-configured jets across the country, the Angel MedFlight team is ready to respond – day or night -- when a patient receives an organ offer. Our Transplant Flight Coordination Team handles all of the air and ground logistics to ensure patients arrive safe and on-time for their life-saving surgery.
ALL OF US
WORKING ON YOUR BEHALF TO ENSURE A SUCCESSFUL MISSION
Increasing Accessibility, Enhancing Quality of Life
Medical flights increase patient access to transplant centers located beyond a reasonable driving range, allowing patients to remain comfortable at home until an organ is available. By including an air ambulance in their Transplant Travel Plan, patients…
- can be listed at multiple transplant centers, increasing the possibility for an organ match
- may be able to maintain their existing home life, even if it’s hundreds of miles from their Transplant Center
- have a safe, sterile alternative to commercial air travel which can expose patients to illness, potentially compromising a transplant opportunity
- can have a family member or companion accompany them on the flight
Angel MedFlight’s Organ Transplant Services
Working with patients either before and after they are listed for an organ transplant, Angel MedFlight’s Transplant Flight Coordination Team…
