Medical Transportation and the Caregiver Mileage Reimbursement programs are for seniors 60+ and persons with disabilities who are unable to drive and need transportation to a medical appointment that is occurring outside of the hours or area that the town funded transportation services provides. Participants must complete an Eligibility Form. If you are requesting a ride through ECTC, you must include a $24.00 annual enrollment fee (check or money order only) with your completed form. For July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018, participants will be eligible for 48 one way rides. This service is funded through a state grant, therefore rides and reimbursements are contingent upon the availability of grant funds. Registered participants who cannot have their needs met by existing services will be provided a limited number of one-way trips per grant year. No fare is charged to the participant, but a $24.00 enrollment fee is required.
ECTC will arrange the medical transportation for eligible participants. Each trip request will be reviewed to determine if it can be met by existing transportation services.
Transportation may be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week providing sufficient notice is given by the client. Requests must be made at least 48 hours in advance and can be made up to 2 weeks ahead. Requests for Monday rides must be made by the preceding Friday at 2:00 p.m. Requests left on the answering machine on weekends and holidays for service for the next business day cannot be accommodated by this program.
No enrollment fee is required if you only use the Caregivers Mileage Reimbursement Program.
Caregiver Mileage Reimbursement Program (for persons unable to drive):
The driver and rider must complete the Request for Mileage Reimbursement form. Mileage will be calculated by ECTC based on the shortest distance. Caregivers are not reimbursed for mileage from their home to the client’s. Completed forms must include the appointment date, start address, destination address, and must be signed and dated by client and driver after last trip entered. For additional information or to register for either program, please call 860-887-5581 ext. 6
