Can someone come with me on my scheduled trips?
Yes; one family member, friend, or personal care attendant over the age of 18 may ride along with you.
If I schedule a return trip home, does that count toward my 24-trip limit?
All 24 trips are one-way trips, so a trip to a destination counts as one trip and a return trip home would count as a second trip.
The transportation benefit is only available after an inpatient hospital stay. How will I know if my hospital stay was processed as inpatient?
This benefit is only available to those who were discharged from an inpatient hospital stay. If you stayed one night or more at the hospital due to receiving emergency services or certain types of surgery, but a doctor never submitted a written order to admit you as an inpatient, then you were most likely under observation during your stay. Talk to your doctor or call Medical Mutual if you are unsure your hospital stay was truly considered an inpatient stay or not.
