"Ride Health, coordinating smarter transportation for every patient need, and Uber Health, facilitating non-emergency medical transport for patients and caregivers, together have expanded options for patients across the country who lack an affordable, simple way to get to and from medical appointments.

An estimated 3.6 million Americans miss or delay medical care each year because of transportation issues, according to the National Academy of Sciences. Some studies peg the cost of missed doctor’s appointments at over $150 billion annually. Especially vulnerable to transportation barriers are the elderly, disabled, and low-income populations, who are more likely to live alone and be socially isolated, without a car, or in areas poorly served by public transit."
