EFFECTIVE January 1, 2019

 

Completed Medical Travel Verificaiton Forms are due no later than 10 days after the medical travel occurs.

Upon determination of mileage reimbursement eligibility for the Medical Assistance Transportation Program (MATP) with ATA, you received an eligibility letter stating the general guidelines of the program along with a copy of the comprehensive ATA MATP User Guide. Both documents explained the ATA MATP mileage reimbursement program policy for advanced approval of trips and submitting your completed “Medical Travel Verification Forms” for reimbursement. Page 4 of the ATA MATP User Guide states:

“To claim mileage reimbursement for a medical assistance trip, it must be approved in advance by ATA MATP by calling 1-866-282-4968. The medical provider is required to certify that you were present for your appointment by completing the MA provider section of the Medical Travel Verification Form. You use the completed Medical Travel Verification Form to verify the purpose of your trip and to file your mileage reimbursement request. Submit this completed form as soon as possible after your Medical Assistance trip or in any case no later than 10 days after it occurs. ATA will reimburse you within two (2) weeks of receipt of your completed mileage reimbursement request.”

Effective January 1, 2019, strict adherence to the ten (10) day policy for receipt of the “Medical Travel Verification Forms” will be enforced. MATP USER GUIDE

Any slips received after ten (10) days of the medical appointment will be denied per the policy outlined in the ATA MATP User Guide.

The only exceptions to this rule will be for MATP mileage clients with pre-approval by ATA to submit their forms monthly; and for medical emergencies of which ATA has been notified within five (5) days of the emergency. In either case, verification forms are due within ten (10) days of the end of the month or of the emergency. If you have any questions regarding this policy or if you are in need of a copy of the ATA MATP User Guide, please contact Customer Service at 1-866-282-4968 or download the pdf here.
