We are pleased to offer non-emergency transportation to those eligible in our service area (Ashland County and Iron County).
Our services are for patients who cannot drive and who do not have transportation available. Additionally, the patient must be eligible through PRC (purchase referred care) and must apply first for their benefits, then if denied they would qualify for our transportation.
Priority will be given to those who are enrolled with the MTM benefit or a participant of CCCW. Eligible riders must also follow PRC eligibility guidelines. BRHWC staff of the Transportation Program will receive requests for transportation through MTM, Inc., CCCW, Program staff, and BRHWC staff only. Requests for transportation from CCCW and MTM staff will ensure a person has authorization. When a request is made for a non-Medicaid participant but is enrolled in a BRHWC program then BRHWC Transportation Program staff will verify a medical appointment, cross references with PRC to ensure eligibility, and then will enter into the BMW system to determine if schedule can sustain the requested trip.
Priority will be given in this order:
1. To riders who have the NEMT benefit through Forward Health or who have CCCW
2. Bad River Elders who do not have vehicle access/use and have a serious illness or an invasive appointment (e.g. chemotherapy, dialysis, heart failure, respiratory failure, etc.)
3. Bad River Elders who do not have vehicle access/use
4. Bad River Program Participants including AODA who do not have vehicle access/use
5. Bad River non-elders who do not have vehicle access/use
6. All other requests
Eligibility of riders is based on Medical Assistance NEMT benefits, and MTM, Inc., as well as availability. Client can either call MTM, Inc. and MTM will then contact BRHWC Transportation Program Scheduler for availability of transport or client can directly contact BRHWC Transportation scheduler/receptionist with needed information to schedule transport.
You may be able to schedule rides with the MTM manager, if you are enrolled in one of the following programs:
Note* You Must call MTM in order to set up transportation; they will then assign the transport to their MTM outlets.
