Medicaid covers rides for clinical services only, but there is more to being healthy than visiting the doctor’s office. Access to services that are not covered by Medicaid that address an individual’s “social determinants of health,” such housing, food, chronic illness support, benefits navigation pharmacies are essential to improving health outcomes. We listened to our partners and have responding by offering a non-medical transportation solution called Circulation.
If you are part of the Healthy Together network, you have access to a web-based transportation coordination platform called Circulation that allows staff (usually care coordinators) the ability to connect Medicaid consumers to non-medical services to address social determinants of health needs. Alliance offers this solution in conjunction with Better Health for Northeast New York (BHNNY).
