Transportation services are the provision of rides to and from the recipient’s home and community-based waiver services, enabling the recipient to receive the supports and services identified on both the support plan and approved cost plan, when such services cannot be accessed through natural (i.e., unpaid) supports.
Transportation services funded through the iBudget waiver shall be used only for recipients who have no other means to get to a service identified on the support plan and approved cost plan.
Transportation services are the provision of rides to and from the recipient’s home and to day program.
Family members, neighbors, or friends who are already transporting the recipient, or who are capable of transporting the recipient at no cost to the waiver, shall be encouraged to continue their support of the recipient.
Recipients who are capable of using the fixed route public transit system to access services on their support plan shall be encouraged to use that method of transportation.
Transportation services should be negotiated at the most cost effective rate from a provider that meets or exceeds the transportation disadvantaged system safety standards.
This service is not available for transporting a recipient to school through 12th grade or age 22 while the recipient is still eligible to receive a free and public education. Transportation to and from school is the responsibility of the public school system.
For other transportation needs not identified on the recipient’s support plan and approved cost plan, the recipient should be directed to the local community transportation coordinator or, if available, the local fixed route fixed schedule public transit (bus system).
