TCT accepts Medicaid payments to get to appointments but not everyone is aware of how to use the Medicaid program When requesting a Medicaid eligible ride using Medicaid as payment, the passenger must schedule directly through a Medicaid broker. To do this, call the number on the back of your Medicaid card at least 3 days prior to your appointment and follow the prompts. The passenger will then be asked a series of questions: Name, location, destination, and time/date of medical appointment. Be sure to request Tri-County Transit as your transportation provider.
Upon receiving the information, the Medicaid broker will send the data to Tri-County Transit through an online portal, awaiting approval. Once it is decided that their are no other scheduling conflicts and the trip can indeed be performed by TCT, a dispatcher will accept the trip. While we make every effort to accept the trip; If the schedule is full on that day, the trip will be reassigned by the Medicaid broker to another transport business.
Once accepted, a TCT bus or Long Distance Medical Driver will be waiting to pick you up at your predetermined time. Riders are encouraged to call TCT the day before to confirm their pick up time.
