Secure Care memberships are yearly and cover the costs of medically necessary emergency transports.
A medical emergency constitutes being unable to be transported by any means other than an ambulance and the need to be taken to a hospital within TransCare's service area.
If a person is unable to stand without assistance or is unable to sit up in a wheelchair, then ambulance transportation may be deemed necessary.
The membership does not include transportation to or from doctor offices and/or serial medical treatments, such as dialysis or therapies of any kind.
Individual membership is $56. An immediately family member (spouse or dependent child) may be included for a total fee of $64.
An additional adult living in the same household is $28 per adult. The coverage is good for any medical emergency ambulance trip.
To become a Secure Care member with TransCare, applicants must fill out a brief information sheet and submit the appropriate payment. Transactions may take place Monday-Friday, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., at the TransCare corporate office, 1299 Voorhees St., Terre Haute.
