I Have A Question About Transportation to Medical Appointments

 
Does my plan cover rides to and from medical appointments?
Transportation to medical appointments for VNSNY CHOICE SelectHealth members is covered by Medicaid.
 
How can I arrange transportation to a doctor appointment?
CHOICE SelectHealth members arrange transportation through Medical Answering Services (MAS), an agency that has a contract with New York State Department of Health to manage non-emergency transportation services covered by Medicaid. To arrange your transportation, contact MAS directly at 844-666-6270 or visit www.medanswering.com.
 
When you call you will need:
  • Your Medicaid ID number (this is the ID listed on your Medicaid card formatted as 2 letters, 5 numbers, 1 letter – like XX12345X)
  • The name, address, zip code and telephone number of your medical practitioner 
  • The street address and the telephone number where you want to be picked up
  • The date and time of your appointment, any special needs you have and the general reason for the appointment (doctor visit, check-up, eye appointment, etc.)
 
You, a caregiver or your provider can arrange for transportation.
