Turning Point Offering Bus Tokens for People on Medicaid for Medical
Turning Point and Medical Answering Services (MAS), a New York State Medicaid-funded program out of Syracuse, are teaming up to make it easier for people on Medicaid to get to their medical appointments. Turning Point is already able to provide a limited amount of bus tokens per person per month for medical appointments, but with the new partnership there will be no limit for those on Medicaid. People on Medicaid can contact MAS to receive tokens through the mail, or, more conveniently, they can go directly to any one of four Turning Point locations across Steuben County, including Bath, Corning, Hornell, or Steuben County Rural Ministry in Canisteo.

The program coordinator said that it will provide the educators with “the tools they need to intervene at a crucial time in the lives of children.”
