Hospital Patient Transportation Information

When you’re ready to leave the hospital, you may be able to drive home yourself or with the assistance of a family member or friends. If your medical needs require another type of transportation, begin planning now.

Please see the transportation options listed below.

Be sure to discuss these options with your insurance provider to better understand your out-of-pocket costs. Funds from a health savings account (HAS) or flexible spending account (FSA) can be used for transportation to or from medical facilities if the transportation is used primarily for, and essential to, medical care.

If you have questions, ask one of your caregivers.
