WHEELCHAIR VAN & MEDICAL CAR SERVICES
Who We Are
Transport1 is Southern Maine's premier wheelchair van service. We are proud to be an independent, Maine owned business. We are available for both local and long distance transportation and are available to travel throughout New England and beyond in order to meet your specific needs.
How It Works
For the safety and comfort of our wheelchair bound patients, all of our wheelchair vans are comfortable, clean and equipped with a five-point restraint system. All drivers are courteous, professional and trained in defensive driving. Drivers are also First Aid/CPR/AED certified and have completed PASS (Passenger Service and Safety) training.
All Transport1 drivers are certified in First Aid, CPR and AED use as well as mobility assistance vehicle techniques. In addition, our entire staff undergoes DMV and criminal background checks on an annual basis.
If you have Medicare, you should know that unfortunately, Medicare does NOT cover wheelchair van and medical car services, even if the service has been deemed medically necessary.
If you have Medicaid, your coverage may grant you access to wheelchair van and medical car transportation for discharges from the hospital home or to a skilled nursing facility and also from your residence to a doctor’s office, hospital, wound care, or dialysis treatment. *Note: Transportation for Medicaid recipients in Southern Maine is scheduled through Logisticare. You must contact Logisticare to schedule the trip. While speaking with a representative from Logisticare, you may request a specific provider if you’d like.
If you have private insurance, you should call the 800 number on the back of your insurance card and speak to a customer service representative to make sure that your trip will be covered under your specific plan. If coverage is approved, call us and we’ll contact your insurance company.
If you want to pay privately, please contact us at (207) 847-3004. We will reply to your inquiry as soon as possible and give you a detailed quote. We accept all major credit cards, as well as personal checks.
