This program is intended for those recipients who are unable to take other transportation services that are offered in the area. Applicants must have explored all other options available to them before they are considered for the program. MMRP can offer a reimbursement rate of $0.30 per mile for those who drive participants for pre-approved medical mileage.
Any licensed, insured driver may drive. In order to be eligible for reimbursement, you must make the connection yourself, complete the transportation report information, and submit it to Newcap within 30 days of the trip. Final determination of eligibility is at the Mobility Managers discretion. Participants must be elderly (over the age of 60) or disabled and NOT be eligible for a Medicaid transportation program. Participant and driver must meet with the Mobility Manager once in person.
Contact the Mobility Manager for an application. Complete an application and return it to the Mobility Manager with the requested documentation. Please allow 7 business days for the application to be reviewed.
