Situation: While visiting his daughter in Montana, a member started experiencing severe swelling, tenderness, and pain in his legs. He had recently undergone a leg surgery which had become infected. After being admitted to the hospital for lower limb cellulitis, his daughter called Global Travel Plus on his behalf to help him return home.
Assistance: The Global Travel Plus medical coordinator began monitoring his care and contacted the local treating team to discuss the patient’s medical condition and treatment plan. It was agreed that the patient would remain at the hospital in Montana until it was safe for him to travel back to Michigan. After four weeks in the hospital, the member was finally cleared for travel. Global Travel Plus arranged for his medical repatriation on a business class flight with a medical escort to accompany him during the entire journey home. The coordinator also arranged for door-to-door car service and wheelchair assistance.
Member Testimonial: "Extremely satisfied with the service received. The first-class ground transportation to airport and home exceeded my expectations.”
