The “Access to Healthcare” transportation program provides low-income elderly, non-wheelchair disabled, and chronically ill citizens of the eight-county service area rides to cancer treatments, dialysis, medical specialists, specialized testing as well as routine medical care. These trips connect clients to their medical providers in Twin Falls, Boise, or even Salt Lake City, when necessary. Along with medical transportation comes essential errands to the pharmacy, grocery store, legal and tax-related appointments.
IVC uses a “workforce” of (trained and insured) volunteers who drive their own vehicles to provide transportation. IVC’s services unique since no client is ever required to pay for services. IVC is considered the last resort to those who have limited financial/transportation/family resources and no other options for transportation. IVC requires a minimum of 48-hour advance notice to coordinate transportation arrangements.
