Some people may qualify for transportation to medical appointments through their health insurance.  To determine this, please call the customer service number on the back of the individual’s insurance card.   People who receive Medicaid may be able to qualify for limited transportation.  This should be discussed with the individual’s  DHHS case worker and/or adult services worker depending on the transportation needed.
