Transportation Summit

The Office of Long-Term Living (OLTL) hosted a virtual Transportation Summit on December 11, 2023. Answers to questions asked during that webinar can be found on the Community HealthChoices (CHC) Communications to CHC Participants web page under the heading “Community Meetings/Information Sessions.” The Q&A document is also available here.

Information was issued on January 11, 2024, regarding a second virtual transportation summit that has been planned for February 7, 2024.

Due to the original webinar not being accessible to everyone, the decision was made to change the format of the summit to a Teams virtual meeting. The meeting is open to the public, transportation providers, and anyone interested in transportation issues in the Community HealthChoices (CHC) program.

The purpose of the meeting is to have a full and robust discussion about transportation concerns and needs. There will be staff from various programs on the call, including the CHC Managed Care Organizations (MCO) and transportation brokers, MATP, and PennDOT. They will be on the call to listen to the issues and answer questions as they can.

This is a follow-up to the meeting held on December 11, 2023. This meeting will not have any formal presentations but will allow for participants, providers, and attendees to discuss their transportation issues, difficulties, or positive experiences. Participants can also ask questions during the webinar by either raising their hand and waiting until they are unmuted or by asking their question in the chat.

Attendees are encouraged to send questions or requests to speak in advance of the meeting to Cortney Alvord via email.
