The Health Care Collaborative (HCC) of Rural Missouri received a MoDot 5310 grant from Missouri Department of Transportation in 2016 improve health outcomes by reducing transportation barriers.
The West Central HealthTran is not a government assistance program and is primarily directed to individuals unable to access transportation through other channels. Patients with access to Medicaid non-emergency medical transportation, veterans’ transportation assistance, or others who have access or can afford transportation, are generally considered ineligible for the service at this time due to limited funding. The implementation of this grant has recently begun and additional information will be available by August 1. Bob Vickers has been hired as the Transportation Coordinator and will be working with local contractors.
