Helpful Tips: General Information for the MATP Program:
1. MATP will not fund trips of less than ? mile unless the recipient is unable to walk that distance.
2. The law requires that we provide the least costly transportation available. CCTD may schedule your trip with a bus, public transportation, another social service transportation provider, or by private automobile for mileage reimbursement.
3. Mileage reimbursement is 12 cents per mile. CCTD needs a statement from the physician with his or her provider number, date of service, and the odometer reading to and from the facility in order to reimburse you for this expense. This information may be mailed, faxed, or brought to the office by the end of each month. Reimbursement checks are issued every two weeks.
4. MATP is a non-emergency medical transportation program.
5. Transportation service for eligible institutional residents, i.e. nursing homes, is covered only when the institution can not bill the costs to the Dept. of Public Welfare.
