Detroit, MI, May 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ModivCare Inc. (“ModivCare” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: MODV), a technology enabled healthcare services company that provides a suite of integrated supportive care solutions focused on improving patient outcomes, is providing much-needed transportation services to Michigan residents in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties wishing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine who face transportation insecurity and are unable to access the mass vaccination site. The door-to-door service is being provided by one of ModivCare’s local transportation partners, M RUN LLC, based out of Warren, MI and serving the metro Detroit area.
ModivCare began offering rides the same day Ford Field opened its doors as the state’s first federally operated mass vaccination clinic on March 23.
“We are pleased to represent the state as its non-emergency medical transportation provider and provide a solution for people who would otherwise not be able access to the COVID-19 vaccine, simply because they can’t get a ride,” said Jackie Odegard, Senior Vice President of Client Services for ModivCare. “In Michigan and around the country, ModivCare has sought innovative ways to connect people to all types of care during the pandemic, including routine and acute physician visits as well as trips to vaccine appointments. We have also delivered food to individuals unable to leave their homes and students who were not receiving nutritious meals in school, as well as home health aides who at the height of the pandemic, did not have access to reliable and safe transportation options.”
Ford Field is one of 22 federal vaccination sites in the U.S., selected because of the region’s ranking on the CDC's Social Vulnerability Index, which determines a community's risk for health disparities. Factors taken into consideration include socioeconomic status, household composition, minority status, languages spoken, housing type and transportation, among others.
