Need a ride to your doctor or specialist? rideQSM could be your ticket!
BCBSRI has teamed up with the Blue Cross Blue Shield Institute’s rideQ program to provide transportation services to help eligible members get to and from their doctor’s appointments.
With your BCBSRI plan, you get 24 one-way trips to or from your primary care provider and specialists for $0. Each trip has a 20-mile limit (but, hey, it’s Rhode Island). Any trip over 20 miles will count as additional trips and will be subtracted from your 24-trip total. Rides are available within our service area for all of our Medicare Advantage plans.
- Standard “curb-to-curb” rides are available for members who do not need specialized transportation or help getting to and from the car. Rides can be scheduled on demand or up to six (6) months in advance.
- Members who need specialized transportation in wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAV), or when door-to-door help is needed, must request transportation at least 72 hours in advance. Advance notice for WAV may vary based on available WAV provider(s) in your area.
Have your BCBSRI Member ID card and your phone number handy.
