Non-Emergency Medical Transportation

For non-emergency conditions, there are different types of medical transports available. These vehicles can sometimes take people very large distances. However, they can also take people short distances. In fact, many people rely on medical transports to get to locations near their home, such as the grocery store. Non-emergency medical transports can take people from one place to another via van, plane, helicopter, or bus. Some non-emergency medical transports will transport a number of patients at once. However, there are others that simply transport one patient at a time.

paramedicsMedical transports that are designed for long distances tend to be quite high in price. In fact, the trips aboard these types of medical transports can run patient’s well into the thousands of dollars. Furthermore, insurance companies commonly fail to cover long distance medical transportation. However, these medical transports are often necessary to take patients from the hospital to a nursing home of their choosing. They are also often needed to take a disabled patient long distances for other purposes. While these types of medical transports are often land vehicles, they also can transport patients by airplane or helicopter.

Another type of medical transport is short distance medical transportation. These medical transports are often used to take a disabled individual from one location to another within their home city. They are also used to take people short distances between cities. These services commonly are called cabulances, but this is a catch all term. Cabulances are not a particular service in and of themselves, and many medical transport companies use this term. Many people rely on these transportation services, and therefore they are designed to be affordable. They often can charge rates of 20 dollars for a ride, or so. However, the specific amount of money that cabulance services charge varies greatly depending on the individual service.
