Can your therapists sign a Medical Information Form (MEDIF)?
No, absolutely categorically not.
You may be asked for proof of your “fitness to fly” when requesting assistance. If you have a stable condition, there is generally no need to be cleared for travel.
There are usually two parts to the medical clearance process:
- You will be asked to provide information about your situation or condition and, for many passengers, this will be all you will need to complete.
- If the airline has concerns about how flying might impact your particular condition, it will ask you to complete a further form.
You may also be asked to provide medical proof at this stage, often a doctor’s note.
The ESAD Int’l Protocol does not allow any of our therapists to sign off on this form.
