    Our Mission…

    Transporting children and expectant mothers, with little or no means of transportation, to needed medical care, at no cost to the families

    Who is eligible for Kid One 

    ¦  Children under the age of 19

    ¦  Expectant mothers in need of prenatal care

    ¦  Families with a temporary or permanent lack of transportation

    Who Makes the Referral?

    ¦  Family members, physicians, neighbors, Non-Profits serving children, Social Workers, School Nurses/Counselors, State Agencies

    What types of appointments are eligible?

    ¦  Eligible patients can request transportation to any facility that will better them mentally, medically and physically.  Some examples are: Sick doctor visits, well doctor visits, vision/dental care, physical/ occupational therapy, and counseling.

    Things to Remember:

    ¦  Appointments can be scheduled up to 30 days in advance

    ¦  Transportation is provided on a first come first serve basis

    ¦  Clients will receive a courtesy call with an  anticipated pick-up time, the day before their appointment

    ¦  The driver will call the clients the day of their appointment (driver must speak to client and verify that transportation is still needed, this prevents no-shows and cancellation at the door)

    ¦  Wait times for return trips home vary, it’s not uncommon for a client to wait up to an hour for transportation (Kid One strives to serve as many clients as efficiently as possible)

    ¦  Please remind your clients to notify Kid One if they do not need transportation home

    ¦  To request a transportation payment, clients are to call Medicaid at 1.800.362.1504 for Medicaid eligible appointment

    There’s a small fee for appointments that are not covered by Medicaid and clients that are not Medicaid recipients
