Medical Assistance Transportation
The Medical Assistance Transportation Grant Program is funded by the State of Maryland and coordinates transportation services for Medical Assistance recipients who reside in Garrett County, and who are in need of transportation to access medically necessary services. This program provides “last resort” transportation for ambulatory, wheelchair, and stretcher-bound recipients who have no other means available of transport to get to and from medical appointments.
Schedule Transportation Services
Call the Garrett Transit Service at 301-533-9010, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except on holidays, to schedule transportation for medical services. If the visit is out-of-county, a minimum 3-day notice is required to schedule.
This service is available to Garrett County residents with eligible, non-restrictive Medical Assistance (Medicaid) to medical services that are covered by Medical Assistance and for which there is no other means of transportation. If you are new to this program, you will be required to call GCHD at 301-334-7700 in order to be screened; after being screened, you may then contact Garrett Transit Service to schedule your ride. If you are an ongoing recipient of this service, you will be screened by GCHD on a quarterly basis, or when you have a change in status, whichever is more frequent.
Complaints or Issues
