MedjetAssist is aware of members concerns regarding the recent events surrounding the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and resultant U.S. cases. At this time the evacuation of Ebola patients is being coordinated by the Federal Government under direction of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Due to this, medical transport services will not be provided to any member who has a diagnosis of, or is suspected of having, a Biosafety Class Level 3 (and above) pathogen as classified by either the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
As always Medjet stands ready to assist its members in dealing with these issues. It is also important during this time of year to be mindful of the upcoming cold and flu season as well as the continuing growth of the Enterovirus D68 currently effecting many children. With travel season upon us, please be mindful of taking basic precautions to protect against these issues.
