How do I schedule a ride?
You must call MTM three (3) business days before the appointment (unless it is an urgent need), at 1-866-796-0601 and have the following information ready:
- Full name, current address and telephone number
- Medicaid ID number
- Doctor name, address, and phone number of appointment
- Type of appointment (doctor, therapy, etc.)
The Metro is a great resource for our program and an excellent way for you to get where you need to go. You can even use the Metro’s Online Trip Planner to help you plan your trip and find the current fares. Then use our SmarTrip Log to track your appointments for reimbursement.
