Medicaid patients will have access to the Lyft rideshare program for medical transportation. Lyft is now a registered access provider. 

Arizona is the first state to offer rideshare as an option for non-emergency medical transportation. 

Spokeswoman Heidi Capriotti for Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System said the new addition will positively impact patients.

“By adding this new provider type to access policy, we're expanding the capacity and the ability for more services and more options for services provided to members. It increases access to transportation and increases capacity within our network,” Capriotti said. 

Members will still be required to contact their enrolled medical health care plan to schedule transportation.
