2020 (Outside Common Medical Area FormThe information on this form helps in establishing an enrollee’s need for transportation outside their common medical market. This occurs when necessary care is receivable only outside the community generally. Transportation may be authorized for a Medicaid enrollee when the appropriate Medicaid-covered treatment is unavailable locally per NYCRR Title 18 §505.10, §360, 92 ADM 21, and/or review by representatives of the NYS Department of Health and/or its agents. Please note: While this completed form is required, completion of this form does not guarantee authorization of Medicaid-funded transportation outside the common medical marketing area. The Medicaid program will not authorize transportation outside the common medical marketing area when the enrollee has been non-compliant with local medical providers and that enrollee is unable to receive services locally based on their own actions. CMA Policy Updated 2018
