Now that I am on oxygen 24 hours a day the next hurdle was doctors’ appointments. I could not always have someone to assist me, and I did not find out until later that Paratransit was available for people using walkers and mobile scooters. At least the hospitals have orderlies to wheel you to the offices (Doctors’ offices and medical facilities should have Paratransit info available so patients can complete the forms while they are there instead of having to go back with forms to complete). Paratransit is also available for other trips, shopping, etc. It should be possible for an ambulance fee to be waived because of a patient’s medical condition.
