Transportation Listening Sessions
MassHealth members require varying levels of assistance including so-called “curb to curb”, “door to door”, and “door through door” transportation. Currently, curb to curb transportation for members residing in the community is authorized by MassHealth using a Provider Request for Transportation (PT-1) form and arranged by Brokers contracted by the HST Office. Door to door and door through door is arranged using a Medical Necessity Form and provided by Fee For Service (FFS) vendors who contract directly with MassHealth. EOHHS is considering creating a single unified process for requesting, authorizing and delivering transportation to all eligible MassHealth consumers, regardless of whether the member requires curb to curb, door to door, or door through door transportation. This single unified process would give Brokers oversight and responsibility over current MassHealth FFS transportation.
