OMAP Announcement 04-07-2020-03: MATP Mileage Reimbursement
Updated: May 26, 2021; Issued: April 7, 2020
All Users of the Medical Assistance Transportation Program (MATP)
This is to notify you of the enhanced mileage reimbursement rate available during the COVID-19 public health emergency
An option for MATP transportation is to transport yourself to your medical appointment. If you have access to a vehicle, you can be reimbursed for mileage, tolls and parking expenses. If you are not already registered and are interested in the mileage reimbursement program, please call your transportation provider to do so.
Your transportation provider will go over the policies and procedures of the program when you register. You must call your MATP agency in advance of an appointment and complete all required forms. Please follow all policies and procedures, including submitting all toll and parking receipts in a timely manner.
Effective April 1, 2020 and continuing through the COVID-19 public health emergency, the mileage reimbursement rate is increased to $0.25 per mile. You do not need to do anything at this time to get the increased rate if you travel to a Medicaid covered medical service.
As a reminder, this rate is temporary and will continue during the public health emergency. The rate will return to the established rate of $0.12 per mile after the public health emergency has ended.
Please let your MATP agency know if you have any questions.
