Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio) – For many Upper Peninsula Health Plan enrolled members, transportation assistance is essential to connect them with the care they need. Without it, they possibly would not receive necessary medical care to prevent future illness.
Mandie Haile, UPHP Transportation Coordinator, joined the SUNNY Morning Show today to talk about how the services help with non-emergent medical transportation assistance to medical appointments for enrolled members.
Haile explained that the assistance is provided through direct mileage reimbursement, local bus and taxi services or volunteer drivers as needed.
She said to find out more about how this specialized assistance helps UPHP enrolled members, contact the UPHP Transportation Department direct by dialing 1-800-835-2556 and follow the prompts to reach the department.
Haile added that UPHP also has an online tool to request transportation assistance which is located at the UPHP website at www.uphp.com/transportation.
