About Us

Services

We are pleased to offer non-emergency transportation to those eligible in our service area (Ashland County and Iron County). 


Our services are for patients who cannot drive and who do not have transportation available. Additionally, the patient must be eligible through PRC (purchase referred care) and must apply first for their benefits, then if denied they would qualify for our transportation.  

Eligibility

Priority will be given to those who are enrolled with the MTM benefit or a participant of CCCW. Eligible riders must also follow PRC eligibility guidelines. BRHWC staff of the Transportation Program will receive  requests for transportation through MTM, Inc., CCCW, Program staff, and BRHWC   staff only. Requests for   transportation from CCCW and MTM staff will ensure a person has   authorization. When a request is made   for a non-Medicaid participant but is enrolled in a BRHWC program then BRHWC Transportation Program staff will verify a medical appointment, cross   references with PRC to ensure eligibility, and then will enter into the BMW   system to determine if schedule can sustain the requested trip. 


Priority will be given in this order: 

1. To riders who have the NEMT benefit through Forward Health or who have CCCW 

2. Bad River Elders who do not have vehicle access/use  and have a serious illness or an invasive appointment (e.g. chemotherapy,  dialysis, heart failure, respiratory failure, etc.) 

3. Bad River Elders who do not have vehicle access/use 

4. Bad River Program Participants including AODA who do not have vehicle access/use 

5. Bad River non-elders who do not have vehicle access/use 

6.  All other requests
