The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association has launched a new effort to help pilots stay healthy and keep their medical certificates, with the creation of the AOPA Medical Services Program.
“AOPA members have access to some of the best online information available,” said AOPA President and CEO Craig Fuller, “from AOPA’s TurboMedical, which helps them prepare for their medical exam, to the online database of medications allowed and not allowed by the FAA.
All AOPA members, whether they choose to participate in the Medical Services Program or not, will continue to have access to AOPA’s online medical resources.
The new program has two levels. The Essential Program gives members support from and consultation with AOPA’s medical certification specialists to track their medical certification application through the FAA; access to WorldDoc, an online health management and information system; access to MicroSoft HealthVault, a secure online medical record storage service; a bi-monthly, pilot-focused medical newsletter from AOPA’s Medical Certification staff; and a free prescription drug discount program.
The Comprehensive Program offers all of the benefits of the Essential Program plus medical records review by the AOPA Medical Certification staff, and if necessary, AOPA intervention on behalf of the member with the FAA Aerospace Medical Certification Division.
The Essential Medical Services Program costs $37, while the Comprehensive Program is $99.
