MassHealth PT-1 (prescription for medical transportation)
|Who can use this option?||
Any MassHealth member within a category that includes transportation-eligible coverage (Standard, CommonHealth, CarePlus, or others) can qualify. Your MassHealth medical provider must complete, sign, and submit a Prescription for Transportation (PT-1) form on your behalf.
|How much does it cost?||
Free – no charge
|When is this option available?||
Any time you require covered medical services. Please call your transportation broker or the MassHealth Customer Service Center for details.
|How far ahead do you need to plan?||
Whenever possible, please schedule trips at least three (3) days in advance.
|What accommodations are available?||
Wheelchair accessible vehicles are available. Non-emergency ambulance service is available if your medical condition requires it. The staff will be able to enter the home to provide further assistance. Your medical provider can indicate on the PT-1 form whether you require an escort. If approved, you may bring an escort (e.g., friend, family member, or personal assistant) with you to your medical services. You must arrange the escort on your own; escorts are not provided as part of the MassHealth service.
