LogistiCare will ask if the member can walk or if you require a higher mode of transportation such as Livery Car or wheelchair and will then provide the best type of transportation for the member needs.
Guidelines for ordering each mode of transport:
Gas/Personnel Reimbursement: The member is eligible for reimbursement for the cost of their transportation to and from covered medical services by friends or other individuals when transport is prior approved and the client has no other means of transportation or personal resources to use his or her own vehicle.
Bus: The member lives within ¾ blocks of a bus stop, the medical facility is within ¾ blocks of the bus, the member can walk ¾ blocks and understands common signs and directions.
Livery: The member can walk to the curb and board and exit the vehicle unassisted, but cannot utilize the bus.
Wheelchair: The member is a wheelchair user, requires lift-equipped or roll-up wheelchair vehicle and driver assistance. The member must have their own wheelchair or notify Logisticare of the need for one
BLS Ambulance: The member is confined to bed, cannot sit in a wheelchair, and requires medical attention/monitoring during transport for reasons such as isolation precautions, oxygen not self-administered by patient, sedated patient.
ALS Ambulance: The member is confined to bed, cannot sit in a wheelchair, and requires medical attention/monitoring during transport for reasons such as IV requiring monitoring, cardiac monitoring, and tracheotomy.
