Advantage Ride Pilot In Florida

Check out this article about the Advantage Ride pilot in Florida, which provided free rides for individuals on Florida's I/DD Medicaid waiver AND I/DD Medicaid waiver waiting list: https://www.fsacentral.org/single-post/2019/03/01/Transportation-Pilot-Provides-Free-Rides-Across-County-Lines! I find this pilot so innovative because it provided free rides across county lines for people receiving I/DD services and on the waiting list to receive services. Transportation is a social determinant of health, and giving people with I/DD a way to travel freely for any purpose (not just medical appointments) is certain to boost their physical, social, and emotional health and wellbeing! :)
