When to ask for a ride

When to ask for a ride

Ask for a ride as early as you can — at least 2 business days before you need it for regular trips.

Sometimes you may ask for a ride with less notice, like:


  • Pick up after discharge from a hospital
  • Trips to the pharmacy to pick up medication or approved medical supplies
  • Trips for urgent conditions (not emergencies but severe or painful enough to need treatment within 24 hours)

Need to cancel your health care visit? You’ll want to let us know before the approved and scheduled trip.
