Medical Assistance Transportation (MATP) – Clearfield County
The Medical Assistance Transportation Program (MATP) is a county-based program that provides transportation to medical services for Medical Assistance (MA) consumers in Clearfield County. MATP is funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare (DPW). In Clearfield County, the MATP Program is administered by Central Pennsylvania Community Action, Inc.
Our program offers vendor transportation or mileage reimbursement to help you get to medical care or services from a Medical Assistance provider. We are required to provide you with the least expensive, most appropriate transportation service available that will meet your needs.
You can use MATP services to go to medical appointments or to get to any service Medical Assistance pays for. These medical services include: therapies, tests, dental visits, trips to the pharmacy to get prescriptions, mental health treatment, drug & alcohol treatment, and trips to medical equipment suppliers.
You cannot use MATP:
- If you need emergency ambulance transportation;
- For non-medical trips such as for grocery shopping or for social activities;
- To obtain medical care that is not covered by Medical Assistance.
Please contact CPCA for more information about the program.
