Transportation

Our Work

Each year, millions of Americans encounter transportation barriers that prevent them from accessing the medical and non-medical services they need to heal and thrive. To address gaps in service, health care providers, payers, and policymakers are experimenting with new approaches to provide transportation more directly and to use transportation to connect patients to a wide array of health-related services (e.g., food, housing, etc.), but often face legal obstacles that can limit the reach of these programs. The Health Law Lab develops resources describing current gaps, innovations, and policy opportunities on this topic, and works with partners to drive related health system reform.
