Medicaid Transportation Brokering
People For People will be closed all day for an agency-wide training on Wednesday, September 17th
2014. We will re-open on Thursday, September 18th for regular business hours.
People For People serves communities in nine counties by
arranging transportation for people of all ages who have current
Washington State Department of Social and Health Services Provider One Medicaid
card and need transportation to non-emergency medical services. Verification
for proper eligibility is confirmed and then the most cost-effective,
appropriate transportation is coordinated.
A primary goal of these services is to assist clients with vouchers for gasoline
or mileage reimbursement if they have their own transportation resources. If
that is not possible, transportation is arranged using contracted providers such
as local transit and paratransit providers, volunteer drivers, nonprofit
providers, cabulance and taxi companies.
People For People ensures that the lowest cost, most
appropriate ride is arranged for the client. Trips may be shared with other
Call Center Office Hours:
Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. excluding weekends and all
major holidays. We ask for two business days notice for local trips and five
business days for long distance out of area trips.
