The Medicaid office said that they will pay for some forms of medical transportation. Why won’t you file my dad’s Medicaid for this transport from Florida back to my home in Tennessee?

Medicaid will pay for some forms of patient transportation, in some situations, for some people, some of the time. First, you must qualify through your local Medicaid office. Once you qualify, they will advise you what the parameters are for medical transport coverage. Never, in any case or situation that we have seen to date, will Medicaid approve any part of a long distance, non-emergency transport.
