The diagnosis of cancer does not have to be a death sentence. With proper treatment, you can recover and resume living a normal life. In Houston, the place to go for treatment is MD Anderson Cancer Center. One of the biggest challenges you have to face as you get your treatments is getting to the facility on time, when you are scheduled for numerous appointments for chemotherapy, radiology, or both. Amera provides non-emergency medical transport (NEMT) to get you to appointments and reduce your stress.

The Dilemma Of Getting To Appointments

Amera Solutions
Finding a convenient way to get to appointments can be problematic:

  • You may not drive, or may be temporarily or permanently too impaired to do so
  • You do not have family and friends who can always get off work to take you to appointments
  • You may not be on a route for public transportation
  • You may have other medical problems that make common forms of transportation impossible to use

Nationwide, inability to access transportation is one of the biggest reason for missed appointments. When you miss appointments, you don’t get treatment you need, and you may, as a result, slow down your recovery. In addition, you leave the facility with an open appointment that they could have offered to someone else.

Why To Use Amera For Non-Emergency Medical Transport To MD Anderson

The MD Anderson Cancer Center is part of the huge Texas Medical Center in Houston and has three main campuses where you might have to go, as well as regional care centers in the Bay Area, Sugar Land, Katy, and The Woodlands. Finding parking and then getting to the right place can be more of a challenge than you are up for when you are sick.

The advantage of using NEMT from Amera is that you are assured of door-to-door delivery wherever your appointment or treatment is scheduled at the facility.
