The Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) has partnered with Veyo to provide HUSKY Health members with another way to get to and from their medical appointments – using the help of a friend or family member. Veyo provides compensation to drivers who give HUSKY Health members a ride to their eligible healthcare appointments. This is called a “mileage reimbursement.”
Trips are paid at the level of $0.19 per mile. The total amount paid is calculated based on the most direct route from the member’s pickup location to the healthcare facility and back. The route is generated using Veyo’s mapping software. Payments to drivers will be distributed electronically (unless the driver specifies otherwise).
