Transportation to Appointments
Transportation services help people with low incomes access health and community resources that would otherwise be unavailable because of the lack of private or public transportation. Your county Department of Social Services can provide you with an application for Medicaid-approved transportation. Transportation is for medical appointments and/or getting your prescriptions at the pharmacy. Generally, riders have to call two to four days ahead to arrange a ride. There is no fee for people enrolled in Medicaid. For people not enrolled in Medicaid, transportation depends on available space and may cost from $1 to $2 each way.
