Housing Letter, Travel Letter, and Signed Airline Form (US)
This package includes the needs assessment for both emotional support animal travel and housing letters, and a 30-minute mindfulness session with a licensed mental health care provider.
In addition, US airlines now require mental health care providers to certify the passenger is currently undergoing professional care for ongoing treatment regarding a mental health-related disability.
This requirement is much more than just “signing a form,” as you must be currently under the care of a licensed mental health care provider. US airlines have mandated this requirement. The assessment and session will typically last 40-50 minutes, and can be one in one appointment.
Those that qualify will receive three documents.
- ESA housing letter
- ESA travel letter
- Signed airline form (up to two) indicating passenger/client is under the clinician’s care
Most airlines are follow American Airlines‘ ESA documentation validation which includes “contacting your mental health professional.” Given our total compliance with federal HIPAA data privacy guidelines, unless a passenger/client purchases the additional airline verification service (which puts into place a signed HIPAA-waiver, allowing the sharing of protected health information), our clinicians cannot legally answer any airline queries.
If you are qualifying a banned breed, you must select the option below, as an additional assessment is required.
