Volunteer Drivers

Upper Peninsula Health Plan (UPHP) offers Non-Emergent Medical Transportation (NEMT) assistance for some of our members. Assistance includes mileage reimbursement or ride assistance, which includes bus tickets, taxi services and our volunteer drivers. Our volunteer drivers are the heartbeat of our benefit, assisting our members by getting them to and from their medical appointments. Without volunteer drivers, many of our members would not be able to get the medical care they need.

PLEASE NOTE: Effective July 13, 2020, Upper Peninsula Health Plan (UPHP) drivers and members must wear a face covering that covers both the mouth and nose during transports. This policy is being implemented to protect the health and safety of our members and drivers, and to ensure UPHP is in compliance with Executive Order 2020-147. Exceptions can be made for those who cannot medically tolerate a face covering or are communicating with someone who is hearing impaired or otherwise disabled and where the ability to see the mouth is essential to communication.
