Wheelchair Van FAQs
Does Medicare pay for wheelchair transportation?
No. Medicare does not pay for wheelchair van transportation. Medicare does not view wheelchair service as a medical form of transportation. Fortunately, wheelchair van service is less expensive than an ambulance transport.
Will you transport a patient out of state?
Yes. We will transport a patient out of the area. Please call a customer care coordinator to discuss your options.
Does your wheelchair van accommodate aid or relation to ride with the patient?
Yes. One person may ride with the patient.
What does a wheelchair ride typically cost?
Our Wheelchair ride costs at $60.00 for distances within 10miles.
An additional mile is $2.00 per mile. Our customers are happy that we save them an average of $10.00 a ride compared to what is obtainable in the Baltimore Metro area.
Are wheelchair transport services insurance deductible?
No, most insurances will deny it unless it’s contained within their care package. Some managed care programs allow for a limited number of transports per year, but again, some major insurances cover this service.
What if I need to book a ride out-of-state?
We provide services in the Maryland, DC, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Delaware metro area. We’ll give you a quote for your trip. If it’s really far, say it’s an eight-hour trip, we’ll add in the cost of a hotel fee for the driver. So it varies. You can give us a call for a customized quote.
I’m not sure which mode of transport is right for me or my patient/family member. Can you help me?
Of course. When you call, our care coordinators will talk to the family and ask a series of questions to determine what mode of transport best suits that customer. For example, if it’s a long-distance transport, sitting in a car for six hours is one thing, but sitting in a wheelchair is another. In that instance, we would recommend ambulance services instead.
What if I’m looking for employment as a wheelchair van driver in Maryland?
