Provide free air transportation to those patients needing diagnosis and treatments at medical facilities not available to them locally. Our goal is to eliminate the burden of travel allowing the patient to concentrate on getting well.
Patients must fill out the following forms and fax them to the Pilots for Patients office (318-388-4924): Request for transportation Physician's statement The request for transportation and the physician's statement (with a handwritten signature) need to be faxed to our office (318-388- 4924). Keep in mind we need 5 working day notice for flight requests.
The 5 days’ notice does not begin until we receive all paperwork.
