Lake Gogebic Senior Citizens Club, Inc offers a medical escort program to seniors age 60 years and over who are in need of assistance to medical facilities.
Volunteer drivers for the Medical Escort Program are reimbursed for the mileage traveled, they volunteer their time. The mileage reimbursement is offered at the current rate of 50 cents per mile or up to $100.00 a trip, or approximately 200 miles round trip. The agency has the right to change the per mile rate at any time. When a trip is greater than what the reimbursement allows, the client must work out these additional costs with the driver prior to the trip.
Clients are asked to cover the cost of parking fees and any other cost associated with the trip. If the trip is over 4 hours, the client is also asked to provide the driver with meal costs for a lunch as a general courtesy.
A 48 hour or more notice in advance, is needed to make the proper arrangements and contacts. If your appointment is scheduled on a Monday, please notify the office by the prior Thursday.
The medical escort program has a limited budget. Donations are welcomed and help increase our budgeted amount. Donations/payments can be mailed to the address above. If you have any questions feel free to contact us at (906) 575-3461.
