There are basically two types of medical transportation – emergency and non-emergency medical transportation. Everyone is familiar with the former, emergency medical transportation, while not everyone knows about non-emergency medical transportation. Non-emergency transportation allows individuals who don’t drive to get to medical appointments, like a visit with the doctor or physical therapist, without having to call on friends or family members for assistance. Patients can get to their appointments on time, and safely with non-emergency medical transportation from trusted, qualified providers like Stellar Transport.
Non-Emergency Medical Transportation Explained
You might be wondering, what exactly non-emergency medical transportation actually is. Well, in fact, non-emergency medical transportation is the ideal solution for individuals who don’t drive but need safe transportation without depending on friends or relatives. Non-medical transportation offers a positive alternative for those who want to remain independent while not inconveniencing friends and family, no matter how willing they are to help.
Non-emergency medical transportation is a great solution for many individuals including those who have recent injuries or have undergone surgery, those needing physical therapy or rehabilitation, senior adults who no longer drive with no access to convenient public transportation.
