The Midwest Medical Transport (MTT) system, which serves the Midwest, is one of the busiest in the country.
But for some of the most vulnerable people, it is a lifeline, as well.
Many patients are denied access to transportation to and from the hospital, and often have to spend hours in a waiting room, waiting for a ride to the doctor’s office or a clinic, to get their next dose of medication or test results.
The system, operated by TransCare Network of Chicago, serves more than 13 million patients, including those who live in rural areas.
Here are six ways to get to and/or from the hospitals and doctors you need when you need them most.1.
