How Much Does It Cost To Repatriate a Patient From

Spain to UK?

For those needing medical repatriation from Spain to the UK due to a health condition, there is a range of services available. Here, we provide information about the cost and necessary steps involved in safely transporting patients between these countries.

Understanding Medical Repatriation Medical

repatriation is the process of transporting a patient from one country to another for medical treatment. It involves coordinating with healthcare providers in both countries, arranging transportation, and making sure that the patient has all necessary documentation. While medical repatriation can be costly, this service can ensure that a patient receives the best possible care no matter their location.

Cost of Air Ambulance and Commercial Flights

Air ambulance costs vary greatly depending on the distance between the two countries and can range from £6000 to over £20,000. Commercial flights are typically more affordable but still costly. Repatriation is usually charged per mile and can cost anywhere from £200-£400 per mile. Additional charges may include medical personnel onboard, catering, pre-flight client interviews and pre-approval of medical documentation. It is important to find a repatriation provider that will best meet your needs while staying within your budget.

Considerations When Choosing a Medical Repatriation Company

When looking at different medical repatriation providers, it’s important to understand the quality of care they provide and their track record. Choosing a company that is experienced in handling medical repatriations in both Spain and the UK will ensure that the process is smooth and efficient. Furthermore, research the company’s reputation by asking for referrals from other patients or healthcare professionals who have used the services before. Lastly, make sure to compare prices between different companies to ensure you get the best price for your repatriation needs.

Benefits of Working with an International Medical Repatriation Company

Working with an international medical repatriation company has many benefits for those looking to repatriate a patient from Spain to the UK. These companies provide highly trained personnel and state of the art equipment, ensuring that the patient is transported in comfort and safety. Furthermore, they have experience dealing with the paperwork involved in repatriations, thus taking care of all the formalities required. Finally, they have good relationships with airlines and medical institutions which allows them to offer competitive pricing and book flights as quickly as possible.

Insurance Coverage for Patient Transfers

Insurance often covers most, if not all of the costs associated with repatriation. If you or your patient has a valid insurance policy in place then you should contact them to inquire about coverage and limits. They will typically cover the cost of medical support transportation, including specialist medical equipment as well as supporting staff such as nurses. Make sure to provide your insurance provider with all relevant information, such as the nationality of the patient, the destination country and any additional details which may affect the cost and duration of their repatriation journey.
