2. Treatment is not offered locally, there must be a legitimate medical reason to justify scheduling a mission - for example, the treatment is not working, or it is unavailable in the local area.
3. Demonstrated financial need, while there is no formula for screening patients, we must still determine, at our discretion, whether there is a demonstrated financial reason that conventional transportation cannot be used instead.
4 Patient must be medically stable, we are not an emergency air service, although we do coordinate transplant flights. For the most part, if you need that type of service or you reside outside of our five state service area, please contact the National Patient Air Transport Hotline at 1-800-296-1217 or go to their Web site at www.npath.org .
