for guaranteeing insurance coverage. It is the sole
responsibility of the insured to make sure their policy

The automated line is excellent to use if you have your
insurance number available and want to check to see if
you have transportation coverage. Listen carefully and
it should tell you that you have either, ambulatory transportation
coverage or wheelchair transportation coverage. If you
don't hear either of these things, chances are you are
not covered. You may be under your secondary insurance,
so it pays to check that as well. If you have questions
and are not sure, contact Customer Relations above or
call your social worker.
