Ambulance rides

 

If you have no way to get to the hospital during a life-threatening emergency, call 911. We cover ambulance rides on the ground in a medical emergency.

 

You can also use any hospital for emergency care, even if it isn’t in our network. Just show your member ID card. 

 

Nonemergency medical rides

 

We work with ModivCare for your nonemergency medical needs. You can get a ride for visits to your:

 

  • Provider
  • Dental provider
  • Pharmacy
  • Behavioral health care

You can use as many nonemergency medical rides as you need (up to 50 miles round trip).

 

Nonmedical rides to local resources and services

 

Need a ride to the grocery store or food bank? The local library or place of worship? You can get rides to other resources and services, too. And it doesn’t need to be for any medical reason. Your covered rides include 30 round trips or 60 one-way trips each year.

When to ask for a ride

When to ask for a ride

Ask for a ride as early as you can, and at least three business days before you need it. 

 

Sometimes you may ask for a ride with less notice, like:  

 

  • Pickup after discharge from a hospital 
  • Trips to the pharmacy for medication or approved medical supplies 
  • Trips for urgent conditions (not emergencies, but severe or painful enough to need treatment within 24 hours)
  • Trips for getting life-sustaining treatment or any treatment to help prolong your life, like surgery

Need to cancel your health care visit? You’ll want to let us know before the approved and scheduled trip.

  • One other adult
  • One child

Mark your calendar 

 

Remember to mark your calendar for the date and time of your appointment. You'll want to be ready 30 minutes before your driver is due to arrive. Your driver will also contact you soon before they arrive.

  • Aged 7 and younger: Must be in a booster or child safety seat while traveling in the vehicle
     
  • No need for parental consent if the health care service is confidential in nature

Are you a CCC Plus member in a DD waiver program? If so, you can get covered rides for traveling to and from your non-waiver services. The Department of Medical Assistance (DMAS) Transportation provides coverage for these rides. 

 

To schedule a ride, just call 1-866-386-8331 (TTY: 711). You can get help Monday through Friday, 6 AM to 8 PM. You can also visit the DMAS Transportation website to learn more.
