What Is Medical Repatriation?

REVA AirBlogs, Medical Repatriation

When you’re abroad, accidents can happen. The unpleasant reality of a severe injury or illness may be concerning enough to require at-home medical care. In these cases, patients may request medical repatriation. Medical repatriation is defined as a form of emergency medical transport that brings patients to their home country for care. 

Why Patients Request Medical Repatriation

Having a serious medical emergency can be frightening, especially if you’re abroad. Patients may not feel comfortable receiving medical care in a country with different insurance guidelines or language barriers. With medical repatriation, patients can safely and quickly travel home to get the medical attention they need. Whether you need a one-time service or an insurance plan that includes medical repatriation, REVA has you covered.

Medical repatriation may be a necessary process for ill or injured travelers. Some people confuse the meaning of repatriation with medical evacuation. While the processes are similar, medical repatriation is a journey to the patient’s home country. Evacuation transports patients to the nearest healthcare facility.
