With your Blue Cross Community MMAI (Medicare-Medicaid Plan)SM coverage, you may qualify for transportation services. This includes rides to and from your doctor's office or a health care facility. Trips must be medically necessary.
What Services Are Covered?
The plan offers rides to plan approved health-related locations such as:
- A doctor's appointment
- An appointment with another health care provider
- A dental appointment
- A pharmacy
What Services Are Not Covered?
You can only use this service for medical needs. The plan does not cover rides:
- For non-medical needs (examples: to go shopping or to visit a friend)
- To see a provider who is outside our provider network without special authorization from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL).
If you need a ride to the doctor, call Member Services at least 72 hours before your appointment. The hours that you can receive a ride are Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Call 911 if you need emergency transport. (You do not need an OK from BCBSIL in the event of an emergency.)
