Non-emergency medical transportation
If you must travel 30 miles or more from your home to receive covered health care services, Molina Healthcare can provide transportation to and from your health care appointments. When you do not have other transportation available, Molina Healthcare can provide transportation to health care appointments that are less than 30 miles from your home as an additional benefit.
- Molina Healthcare provides 15 round-trip visits (30 one-way trips) for each member per calendar year to any Molina Healthcare provider.
- Medical appointments include trips to a doctor, provider, clinic, hospital, therapy or behavioral health appointment.
Trip to pharmacy
Immediately following a medical appointment, Molina Healthcare will cover trips to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription.
- Let your transportation driver know that you will need to stop at the pharmacy on your return trip.
- While you are at the health care provider’s office, ask them to call your prescription in to the pharmacy so it is ready when you get there.
Emergency medical transportation
Emergency transportation (ambulance), or ambulance transport services, provided through the “911” emergency response system, will be covered when medically necessary. Emergency services are services for a medical problem that is so serious it must be treated right away by a provider.
Non-emergency non-medical transportation
This benefit is limited and members cannot use our transportation as a taxi service. These trips are limited to provide transportation to and from any WIC or County Department of Job & Family Services (CDJFS) re-determination appointment, as an additional service.
