When possible, the air provider will allow family members to join you on the trip back home, but health and safety are always the primary concern. If they cannot come on the flight, Travel MedEvac will arrange a commercial flight to the nearest commercial airport of the hospital you are being taken to.
Can I purchase a plan if I have a pre-existing condition?
Yes, and there are no waiting periods, you just have to purchase the plan before you depart for your trip.
