We use Mercedes Sprinter Vans that are incredibly spacious and create a smooth ride for medical transport. They’re the only vehicle rated by the Department of Transportation for medical transport services.
Depending on the transport time there will either be one or two drivers. Most of the time, transports under 8 hours will only have one driver.
We typically allow up to 2 additional passengers at no extra charge. Our Mercedes Sprinter is really spacious. As more passengers are added, the weight will slightly affect the medical transport.
Yes, we allow pets for ground transportation. Keep in mind the amount of luggage and other passengers that will be accompanying you during transit.

We only need 24 – 48 hours notice depending on where the transport is out of. If the transport is leaving out west, we request 72 hours notice to set something up.
If the patient has a medical emergency during the transport we re-route to the nearest E.R.. Although rare, we’ve dealt with these situations before. Our drivers are prepared to change course immediately.
We make sure our drivers have a clean driving record and we go through a vigorous background check. They also need to pass an initial drug test, as well as random drug tests during employment.
Yes. We do an initial drug test at the start of employment, and we have random drug tests throughout employment at ACC Medlink.
No. RV’s are not DOT Approved and do not have the proper safety features that Mercedes Sprinter vans have. We have a couple articles about the lack of RV safety for medical transportation. Click Here or Here for more information.

Most of the time the insurance doesn’t cover the state to state transport. We recommend checking to see if they are able to reimburse you. If so, we can provide them with any information to help with that process.
