A Word About Medicare:
Medicare will not reimburse for non-medical transportation. They will only pay for medically necessary transportation in an ambulance, usually in an emergency setting. The need for a stretcher does not constitute a medical necessity. It is fraudulent for an ambulance service to file Medicare claims in a non-medical setting and claim they performed a procedure on a client that they did not do.
A Word About Medicaid:
Medicaid in Hillsborough County is organized through a broker system. To arrange for and have Medicaid pay for your non-medical transportation, you must call the broker directly, they will then arrange for their contracted transportation service to transport your client. Transafe Transportation is not a Medicare provider.
