The Medical Assistance Transportation Grant Program is funded by the State of Maryland and coordinates transportation services for Medical Assistance recipients who reside in Baltimore County, and who are in need of transportation to access medically necessary services. This program provides "last resort" transportation for ambulatory, wheelchair, and stretcher-bound recipients who have no other means available of transport to get to and from medical appointments.
Schedule Transportation Services
Call the Medical Assistance Transportation Program at 410-887-2828, Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., except on holidays to schedule transportation to need medical services.
This service is available to Baltimore County residents with eligible, non-restrictive Medical Assistance (Medicaid) to medical services that are covered by Medical Assistance and for which there is no other means of transportation.
A Certification for Medical Transportation (PDF) is required for all patients. This form must be complete and signed by the patient's doctor.

The Maryland State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene requires medical certification for all recipients. Once the form is completed and signed, mail to the Baltimore County Department of Health.
The Patient Eligibility Handbook (PDF) outlines who is eligible for Medical Assistance transportation, what types of transportation are available and how to apply.
