Ambulatory patients can go in a Lyft or Medical Sedan/Taxi vehicle. Lyft vehicles can only be paid for by the facility or the patient’s credit card. If the ambulatory patient is covered by Medicaid, you will need to select Medical Sedan/Taxi. Additionally, Medical Sedan/Taxi should be selected when the patient requires special care (ex. Needs some extra help getting in and out of the vehicle/behavioral health patients etc.)
