Scheduling Your First Non-Emergency Transport Ride
Non-emergency transport services provide individuals and families with transportation to and from their healthcare appointments. These services can also be used to move between facilities. If you need non-emergency transport, then you should schedule this appointment in advance.
The process of booking a ride with our non-emergency transport is straightforward; however, the more notice you can give us, the easier this process will be. If you are doing this for the first time, you might be asking, “how do I schedule non-emergency transport?” There are a few points that you should note.
Call Us To Book an Appointment
The first step in booking a ride is to give us a call. We always have trained, friendly professionals standing by to help you book the appointment. When you call, you should have some important information ready. Some of the information that we will request include:
The name of the patient, his or her date of birth, the patient’s gender, and his or her age
The date and time of the appointment
Where the patient lives as well as the pick-up location
Where the appointment is located
How long the appointment is expected to last
The necessity of any return trip
The name of the physician or medical provider who is authorizing this non-emergency transport, if required
Any special accommodations that patients might require including wheelchairs, stretchers, or other medical concerns
This information is important because it helps us plan our trip so that we can ensure that everyone gets picked up and dropped off on-time. We know that these medical appointments are important and we want to ensure that our patients make it to their appointments on time.
Payment for the Trip
We know that many of our patients might be in challenging financial situations because of their individual circumstances. Non-emergency transport services may be covered by your insurance provider, Medicare, or Medicaid. Insurance providers understand that medical appointments are a crucial part of preventative care and recovery services. For those with transportation issues, they are often willing to cover the cost of transport services. Contact us or your insurance provider to learn more about your coverage options. We are here to make this process easier for you.
Leading Up to the Appointment
As the appointment date and time gets closer, you should expect a reminder from us. We call our patients 24 hours before the appointment to confirm all of the information. Sometimes, plans change at the last minute and our patients might forget to call us to let us know. That is okay! That is why we call our patients to confirm all of the information. This also provides our patients with an opportunity to ask any questions they might have about our transportation services. We are here to help you with your non-emergency transport needs.
