Older adults in Florida have many opportunities to take advantage of a variety of transportation options without compromising their safety or the safety of others, according to senior travel programs. Several states offer variants of the call and transportation program for seniors. Having reliable transportation options is essential for staying safe, independent and healthy. It also helps us feel connected and allows us to contribute to our community. State Medicaid Managed Care Plans (SMMC LTC) provide non-emergency transportation services to enrolled members through their transportation provider.
If you're enrolled in an SMMC plan and need to be taken to a covered service, you can find the transportation provider on your health plan's identification card. Seniors enrolled in the Alzheimer's Disease Initiative (ADI), Community Care for the Elderly (CCE), Home Care for the Elderly (HCE), Local Service Programs (LSP), or programs provided through the Older Persons Act (OAA) can receive transportation services to or from community services and resources. We understand how important it is for elderly individuals to have access to reliable transportation services. That's why we're here to support you by providing useful tips on caring for the elderly and information on home care and health and wellness issues for older people.
