Free Wheels To Your Doctor

May 15, 2018

As a Louisiana Healthcare Connections member, you’ll have free transportation to get you to your doctor’s appointments.

Making a transportation appointment is easy for our members! They need only call 1-855-369-3723 (Hearing Loss: 711) or visit myLAride.net at least 48 hours before the doctor’s visit.

When you schedule your ride, you’ll need to provide some basic information:

  • Member ID number (Medicaid # on your ID card)
  • Date and time of your appointment
  • The address of your appointment

Some important things to know:

  • If you need a long distance trip (over 50 miles), you will need prior approval from Louisiana Healthcare Connections.
  • You cannot use the service for transportation to the emergency room. If you are having a health emergency, you should call 911.
  • If you need Urgent Care, you can schedule a ride any time, seven days a week, 24-hours a day.
  • You must be ready for pick up one hour before your appointment.
  • You may bring one additional passenger on your ride.
  • You must be a Louisiana Healthcare Connections member with eligible Physical Health benefits.
  • You can get answers to other Frequently Asked Questions on our website.
