Can I get a ride to my doctor?
We can help if you do not have a way to get to your doctor, dentist, or counselor. People on the Oregon Health Plan (OHP or Medicaid) get help paying for rides to medical appointments. These are called medical rides. They are also called non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT). You will need to get approval before you go to your appointment. To get approval call the ride service below that serves your region.
Depending on your needs, you could get:
- Help with the costs of driving yourself or being driven by someone else
- Daily or monthly bus passes
- A taxi ride
- A ride in a wheelchair-accessible van
- Other specialized transport
To get a medical ride, you must:
- Be a Trillium OHP member
- Need a ride to a medical appointment covered by the OHP or to a health-related service approved by Trillium. For members who have Medicaid and Medicare insurance, the ride can be provided to OHP or Medicare covered visits.
