Get a ride to MassHealth medical appointments

You can get transportation to MassHealth covered services, including medical, counseling, and day habilitation appointments.

Ask your medical provider to fill out a PT-1 form


Talk to your health care provider if you need transportation to and from a non-emergency medical appointment.

You can check your eligibility for transportation by calling the MassHealth Customer Service Center at (800) 841-2900.

Your MassHealth provider must complete an online transportation request (PT-1 form) for you. There is no paper form. The approval process may take up to 3 business days. You can check the status of your PT-1 form to see if it’s approved.

If the PT-1 form is approved, you’ll receive a letter from MART with instructions on how to schedule your ride. When possible, schedule your ride at least 3 days in advance.

MassHealth Members receiving PT-1 Transportation thru MART often ask the same questions. This FAQ serves to answer those questions quickly (you don’t have to wait to talk with a Call Center Representative):

Important Information

  • MART is closed on the following holidays. If you need to schedule transportation on any of these holidays, please provide as much advanced notice as possible: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents Day, Patriots Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
  • MassHealth transportation provided by MART is curb-to-curb service. If you need additional assistance getting from your residence into a vehicle and out of the vehicle into your medical appointment, you may ask your provider to prescribe an escort to travel with you to help you. Your medical provider must submit a new PT-1 form and you must provide the escort. MART may not transport escorts unless authorized.
  • Unauthorized stops along the way from your residence to your provider’s office (and on the return trip) are not permitted.
  • All MART contracted transportation vendors must display the name of their business on their vehicle – on the right side of the passenger door, and on the rear of the vehicle. You should not board any vehicle that does not display the name of the company that is scheduled to transport you.
