Envoy America, a comprehensive ride-sharing program founded in Scottsdale that offers accompanied transportation and extra assistance for seniors and patients, announced on June 19 that it entered an agreement with Access2Care, a division of American Medical Response. Houston will be the initial market for the new Envoy America services, which began June 6 for Access2Care patients.

Access2Care manages the transportation experience for those receiving a non-emergency medical transportation benefit. This ensures that those in need get the right services, at the right time from the most appropriate transportation resources. It utilizes a large network of contracted and credentialed transportation providers in each service area.

According to a press release, adding Envoy America effectively creates a new category of transport beyond Access2Care’s current transportation options, which include scheduled ambulance transportation, wheelchair/stretcher van transportation and taxis or rides-share services such as Lyft. Envoy America currently provides transportation for the Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix’s Senior Rides Program. JN
