Enhanced Transportation Services
At OneWell Health Care, we believe that access to reliable and convenient transportation is a fundamental right for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). Transportation is the key to independence, enabling individuals to engage in everyday activities, pursue employment opportunities, and participate in their communities. That’s why we offer Enhanced Transportation Services to empower our participants with the freedom to move and explore the world around them.
Expanding Mobility Through Ridesharing
In a world where technology connects us like never before, we’ve embraced the convenience of ridesharing services such as Uber to enhance our transportation options. We understand that traditional transportation methods may not always be the most practical or cost-effective choice for our participants. To bridge this gap, we’ve formed a dedicated business account with Uber, allowing us to provide door-to-door transportation that’s both safe and tailored to our participants’ unique needs.
Qualifying for Enhanced Transportation
To ensure that our Enhanced Transportation Services are the right fit, we carefully evaluate each participant’s situation. Qualification is based on two essential criteria:
We assess whether ridesharing is the most cost-effective option for the participant, considering factors such as local bus passes, taxi services, and regional rail options. Our goal is to provide practical and budget-friendly solutions.
We use our Uber Screening Tool to help determine if the participant can safely use this service. We consider factors such as the ability to identify a vehicle, wear a seatbelt, communicate with a driver, and ensure they reach the correct destination.
Cost Estimation and Approval Process
Our Uber program specialist works closely with participants and their supports coordinators to estimate the cost of ridesharing services. This cost calculation covers trips from the start date of the Uber service to the end of the fiscal year, ensuring transparency and predictability for our participants. This cost information is integrated into the Individual Support Plan (ISP) and submitted for approval to the County Office of Developmental Programs.
Unlocking Independence and Opportunity
Our Enhanced Transportation Services, powered by ridesharing, unlock a world of opportunities for our participants. They can now access employment, social activities, volunteering opportunities, and community integration with ease. This level of independence promotes a sense of accomplishment and inclusion, fostering personal growth and development.
Peace of Mind for Caregivers
We understand that caregivers play a vital role in the lives of our participants. Our Enhanced Transportation Services not only empower individuals but also provide peace of mind to their loved ones. Caregivers can track their loved ones’ journeys in real time through the Uber app, ensuring their safety and well-being during transportation.
Where Can Uber Services be Utilized
Our Enhanced IDD Transportation Services can be used to access a wide range of services and activities outlined in each participant’s Individual Support Plan (ISP). This includes employment, socialization opportunities, volunteering, and community integration. For participants under the age of 21, the service is available for transportation to waiver-funded programs and competitive, integrated employment. Those in residential settings like community living arrangements, Lifesharing, and Supported Living can use the service for transportation to and from competitive, integrated employment.
Navigating Medical Appointments
While Uber services offer convenience, we recognize that medical appointments have specific considerations. Whenever possible, we encourage participants to explore the Medical Assistance Transportation Program (MATP) as the first option for medical appointments. MATP provides the least expensive type of transportation that meets the participant’s needs for each appointment type, ensuring that their healthcare remains a top priority.
In summary, our Enhanced Transportation Services with ridesharing options provide participants with IDD the freedom to explore, engage, and thrive in their communities. We’re committed to making transportation a seamless part of their journey towards independence, enabling them to lead fulfilling lives and reach their full potential.
