Medical Assistance Transportation Program (MATP)
MATP provides transportation to medical services for Medical Assistance (MA) consumers who do not have other transportation available to them. These transportation services are provided through county governments. The counties either provide transportation services directly or hire a transportation provider, depending on the transportation resources available in a county. The transportation available may be:
- Tickets or tokens to ride public transportation
- Mileage reimbursement for use of a private care
- Paratransit services
Transportation is available to almost any service that MA pays for. MATP does not include emergency or other transportation via ambulance, transportation to sheltered workshops, day care programs, transportation for visitation purposes, stretcher services, door-through-door service, transportation to non-medical services, and transportation during severe weather conditions when deemed unsafe or transportation to any medical services that are not payable through the MA program.
- Consumer must receive Medical Assistance.
