At times, diplomatic missions and consular officers of some countries do not cooperate with the repatriation effort, preferring the patient remain in the USA, benefiting from excellent care at no cost to him/her.
Patient repatriation also requires effective communication with multinational diplomatic missions and a good working relationship with the US Department of State.
The MedEscort International team skillfully navigates the endless international maze of stakeholders, political hurdles and the objective limitations of medical care in the patient’s home country.
Each case is individually assessed for a tailored risk management and medical repatriation plan.
