Comments Off on Medical Mileage Reimbursement Program
The Medical Mileage Reimbursement Program is intended for those recipients who are unable to take other transportation services that are offered in the area. Applicants must have explored all other options available to them before they are considered for the program. MMRP can offer a reimbursement rate of $0.30 per mile for those who drive participants for pre-approved medical mileage.
Family income must be at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Participants must be elderly (over the age of 60) or disabled and NOT be eligible for a Medicaid transportation program. In order to be eligible for reimbursement, the participant recruits their own driver (who has a valid drivers license and insurance), completes the transportation voucher report, and submits it to Newcap within 30 days of the trip. Final determination of eligibility is at the Mobility Managers discretion. The participant and Mobility Manager must beet in person, to complete the application process. Use our eligibility calculator to find out if you may be eligible for this program.
