Medicaid Transportation Services

Transportation Services assist Medicaid recipients on full Medicaid programs needing transport to medical care. Federal regulations require that the state assure necessary. Necessary means no other appropriate transportation resources are available to the beneficiary.

Medicaid only pays for transportation:

  • By the least expensive mode available and appropriate for the beneficiary
  • To the nearest appropriate medical provider
  • For a Medicaid-covered service provided by an enrolled NC Medicaid provider.
