Secure a Medicaid Ride

Hope Town is committed to providing non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) to the general public, offering a vital link between individuals and their necessary transportation needs. We aim to bridge the transportation gap, ensuring everyone can access quality medical care and other critical life appointments.

Requesting a Medicaid Ride

Getting a Medicaid ride with Hope Town is simple! Follow these easy steps to request your ride:

Step #1: Call Your Insurance Provider

Initiate the process by calling the number on your insurance card to set up your Medicaid ride. If you want to utilize Hope Town services, please tell them: “I would like Hope Town to be my preferred transportation provider.” They are not required to honor your request, but they will at least notice and do their best.

Step #2: Contact Hope Town Dispatch

Next, contact our dispatch team at 234-430-9365 and provide your confirmation number from your insurance provider. This step helps us secure your ride through our Hope Town portal. While your ride may be automatically assigned, calling us directly increases the likelihood that we can be your chosen ride provider.

Step #3: Stay Informed

Once your ride is booked, you will receive automatic notifications regarding the expected arrival time of your Hope Town transportation at 5:00 p.m. EST the day before your scheduled ride. We believe in keeping you informed and ensuring a smooth experience. Please indicate to our dispatch team if you prefer a text message, and this can be arranged!
