Is Transportation To Your Medical Treatments A Challenge?

Posted By on February 11th, 2019 at 11:05 am | 0 comments.

Uber Health or LyftForHealth may be able to help! Each of these popular ride companies are partnering with healthcare facilities to arrange transportation for patients and caregivers. The hospital books the ride in advance (or the day of the appointment) and the patient is notified by text when to expect the driver. If texting is not an option, the patient will receive a confirmation call from the hospital.

The passenger does not need an Uber or Lyft account; however, the hospital must be participating in the program. Check with your doctor or hospital to see if they might consider joining UberHealth or LyftForHealth, available anywhere that Uber and Lyft have services.

Did you know? Medicare covers post-mastectomy or lumpectomy bras. Doctors may order FREE bras (up to $30 each) for breast cancer survivors who have had a mastectomy or lumpectomy and are covered under Medicare. Medicare covers the first $30 of each bra and the woman is responsible for any costs above that amount. Survivors who have had reconstructive surgery are also eligible for free bras. More information to come in future PBCC publications!
