Roundtrip Partners with Clover Health to Provide Medicare Advantage Members with Non-Emergency Transportation Services
Roundtrip, the leading digital healthcare transportation marketplace, announces it is working with Clover Health (Nasdaq: CLOV), an innovative technology company improving health outcomes for America’s seniors, to offer non-emergency medical transportation to Clover’s Medicare Advantage members.
The goal of the collaboration is to combat one of the most significant barriers to care for seniors in America: transportation.
Clover members whose plans include transportation benefits will be able to schedule non-emergency medical transportation through Roundtrip’s ride ordering app, which includes rideshare options, medical sedans, wheelchair vans, and non-emergency ambulances. By streamlining and simplifying the transportation experience, Roundtrip provides members with flexibility, autonomy and support in getting to their appointments, and ultimately aims to improve health outcomes.
“In 2017, 5.8 million people in the U.S. delayed medical care because they didn’t have a ride to the doctor or hospital, and putting off care results in worse health outcomes and higher costs. Our members, many of whom live with mobility or vision limitations or can’t afford the costs of transportation, are disproportionately impacted by this barrier,” said Vivek Garipalli, Chief Executive Officer of Clover. “Clover’s ambition is to keep people healthier by addressing social determinants of health, and we look forward to working with Roundtrip to help provide our members with reliable and accessible transportation.”
