Community Transportation

Community Transportation is a service available to Medicaid eligible consumers when transportation cannot be provided through another Medicaid transportation service or community resource.

Community Transportation provides transportation to and from Medicaid coverable services. It is not to be used to take you any place that is not a Medicaid coverable service.

The Guernsey County Department of Job and Family Services (GCDJFS) encourages each consumer to choose the mode(s) of transportation that addresses their medical condition and timeliness concerns.

Community Transportation may be available through these modes of service:

  • Mileage Reimbursement - reimbursement paid to the Medicaid consumer for transportation in a private vehicle per actual mile from the consumer’s home to and from the Medicaid coverable service.

    • Mileage reimbursement is paid to the Medicaid consumer, except for a child, under the age of 18 y/o, it is paid to the parent/caretaker on behalf of the minor child.
    • Mileage reimbursement will be paid to only one of the Medicaid eligible consumers (child and/or adult), when multiple consumers are traveling together.
    • Mileage will be reimbursed for actual miles of the most direct route, from the consumer’s residence to the Medicaid coverable service location and from the Medicaid coverable service location to the consumer’s residence.
    • Claims for mileage reimbursement must be received at the GCDJFS by the 10th of the month following the month of service.
    • Agency mileage claim forms must be utilized and each form must be complete, correct, and stamped by the service provider or attach a “return to work” form to be approved for reimbursement.
