Emergency Medical Evacuation

For more than 15 years, AkesoCare has provided emergency medical evacuation services to its members worldwide.  When an emergency situation arises that local (international) medical care cannot adequately treat, AkesoCare's medical staff coordinates all aspects of the medical evacuation. Because each evacuation is unique, a tailored action plan is developed to assure the best medical outcome. The services that may be included in the action plan are:

  • Verification of the medical condition
  • Determination of medical necessity of the evacuation
  • Determination of the nearest qualified medical facility to handle the unique circumstances of the insured's medical condition
  • Coordination of the evacuation options including:
    • Types and availability of appropriate transportation options (i.e. medical evacuation plane and level of medical facility on board, commercial airline, ground ambulance, sea transportation, etc.)
    • Level of medical escort personnel necessary (RN, MD, etc.)
    • Emergency medical reunions
    • Evacuation cost quotes
    • Repatriation of mortal remains

To date, AkesoCare has organized and executed hundreds of emergency medical evacuations all over the globe. The graph below illustrates several of these evacuations.
