Vaccine Transportation

NJ Medicaid has announced that free transportation is available to Medicaid beneficiaries who have an appointment for the COVID vaccine. The information is as follows: 

  • ModivCare is the new name for the company that provides non-emergency medical transportation for NJ Medicaid beneficiaries to health care appointments. The previous name for the company was LogistiCare. 
  • In addition to transporting Medicaid beneficiaries to health care appointments, ModivCare also provides transportation for the COVID vaccine.  There is no mileage limitation for individuals who have a COVID vaccine appointment that is outside of their county. This is important because some people may have to travel a distance to the site of their vaccination appointment.
  • Medicaid beneficiaries who require assistance, including persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), are allowed to have one family member or aide with them in the car.
  • The ModivCare driver will drop off the individual at the vaccination site. The person scheduling the appointment will need to also arrange for a separate pick up time 45 minutes to an hour later.
  • This is the link for the ModivCare website:  To arrange for an appointment for transportation for the COVID vaccine or other health care appointments, please call ModivCare at 1-866-527-9945 Appointments can also be made online from the above website.
