A standing order allows a medical facility to send in a one time request for a Member to attend their program 3 or more days per week for at least 3 months. The Standing Order Form serves as a time saver by not requiring a facility to call in multiple trips three days in advance for Members who receive repeat service. Examples are: Dialysis, Mental Health, and Adult Day Care. A Standing Order for a Member is valid for three months and will be recertified by the LogistiCare staff to make sure the trip continues to be necessary. The Facility will not have to submit a new standing order.
Urgent care transport is not transportation initiated by dialing 911. It is also not transportation that requires an immediate response to take a member to the emergency room for evaluation of a new suddenly worsening condition that threatens life or limb (e.g., any sudden life threatening medical situation, significant trauma, comas, shock, uncontrolled bleeding, respiratory distress, poisoning, drug overdose or any situation where immediate medical relief or treatment is necessary). Urgent care transport does not include routine doctor’s appointments when a patient could have provided the 3 days’ notice and failed to schedule their ride.
LogistiCare will ask the caller can the member walk, or if they require the use of a wheelchair or stretcher, and then provide the best type of transportation for their needs.
It is best to call for a ride at least 3 days before the appointment. Urgent trips such as hospital discharges, wound care appointment, dialysis appointment and etc. may be accepted with less than 3 day notice.
The Standing Order Form should be faxed to LogistiCare at: 
 
East Region 877.457.3341
Central Region- 877.601.0610
Southwest Region -877.601.9795
Complaints or issues may be reported (either verbally or written) by Facilities, Members, Transportation Providers or any individuals or groups in contact with LogistiCare.
The Member, a relative, caregiver, nurse, or doctor may request a ride.
Standing Order must be completed by the Member’s treating facility. Examples: Dialysis Clinics, Mental Health or Adult Day Care. Members or their representative may schedule the first three trips for a Member in need of Dialysis. The Facility Department will then contact the treating facility to secure a Standing Order for the Member’s for future trips.
