MEDICAL ASSISTANCE TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM (MATP)
Thousands of low-income Montgomery County residents depend upon TransNet to visit doctor's offices, healthcare and rehabilitation facilities, pharmacies and mental health providers. For them, getting needed medical care is never a question because TransNet provides the way.
You will first need to apply for the Medical Assistance program by contacting the Department of Human Services (DHS) to determine if you are eligible. (Click here to determine eligibility through DHS.)
Once your eligibility for Medical Assistance services is confirmed, a Medical Assistance Transportation application will have to completed.
The application and instructions are provided below.
The PA Office of Medical Assistance mandates that TransNet identify the least expensive, most appropriate mode of transportation for eligible consumers.
In order to determine the least costly, most appropriate mode, you may be required to undergo a Functional Mobility Assessment by a licensed physical or occupational therapist. The results of this assessment will be used by TransNet to identify the most appropriate mode.
The most appropriate mode of service is available once your eligibility is confirmed for the Medical Assistance Transportation Program (MATP). To apply, complete an MATP application and mail, fax or email your application to TransNet.
Please Note: If you are 65 years of age or older you MUST also register for the Shared Ride Program in order to receive Medical Assistance Transportation services. Even though you are registered for the Shared Ride Program, the entire cost of the trip will be covered by PennDOT/Medical Assistance.
