HCC Partners with Missouri Rural Health Association to Provide Free Rides to Medical Appointments for Lexington Residents and Live Well Patients
The Health Care Collaborative (HCC) of Rural Missouri and its longtime partner, Missouri Rural Health Association (MRHA), are collaborating to bring transportation services, similar to Uber, to rural Lafayette County. Funding is provided by the Health and Wellness Board of the City of Lexington, Missouri. Free rides to medical appointments are offered to residents living within Lexington city limits, and patients of the Live Well Community Health Centers. Individuals living outside of Lexington city limits have the option to self-pay. The goal of the program is to close one of the largest barriers to receiving quality health care: transportation. Health care providers interested in helping their patients secure transportation to and from medical appointments should contact HCC.
