A Guide to Medical Transportation

Tools & Insights


Listen to our Podcast Episode about TRansportation

Patients Rising brings its unique and established brand of patient advocacy to a weekly podcast.


Transportation to and from appointments, or lack thereof, is a major hurdle facing patients who contact our Patients Rising Concierge team. Any delays caused by transportation have a domino effect on a patient’s healthcare journey and can lead to poor outcomes. 

Samantha Smith, our Patient Navigator at the concierge desk, handles transportation challenges for patients daily. She shares helpful resources to help you understand insurance coverage for transportation, how to find local and community-based services, and tips for booking transit if you have a specific illness or medical device need.

And hear Kate Pecora’s interview with Dr. Bageshree Cheulkar of Virtua Health on the community transportation services provided to patients, and how they can impact health outcomes.

Honest, helpful discussions about chronic illness issues.
