Charter Home Health

Transportation Support Services

Reliable Transportation for Medical Appointments and Local Errands

Patients receiving long-term home care often need reliable transportation for doctors’ appointments, collecting prescription medication, and other errands. Charter Home Health provides appropriate support and guidance for our patients depending on their situation and specific needs.
Carefully selected

Medicaid Waiver Patients

For patients participating in Medicaid Waiver programs in Pennsylvania, our care coordinators will facilitate contact with the service coordinators at the patients’ MCO in order to ensure access to ‘non-medical transportation’ facilities where possible. In addition caregivers may be available to provide limited support for local essential errands such as grocery shopping and prescription medication pick-up.

Private Duty/Private Pay Patients

Patients want to remain in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible, and Charter Home Health wants to make this possible. Our compassionate caregivers can provide limited transportation to clients for doctor appointments, the local pharmacy, grocery shopping, and other essential tasks. Our caregivers can use their own vehicles, or the client’s vehicle. Transportation needs and preferences of patients are assessed at the outset of care as part of building individual care plans, and are taken into consideration in the pricing of care. We perform background checks to ensure our caregivers have a valid license, registration, insurance, and that their driving records are clean ensuring the safety of our clients.

Uber Health

For private pay patients interested in using a ride-share service, we partner with Uber Health to provide supplemental transportation where this is feasible. Our coordination team can facilitate the rides where there is a prior arrangement including the agreement of the patient to incur the additional cost of this service.
