Rep. Anielski Votes To Expand Medical Transportation Options For People With Physical Handicaps
HB 195 aims to provide greater freedom for Ohioans, lower healthcare costs
 
 

COLUMBUS—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) recently voted for legislation that broadens the transportation options for individuals with disabilities.


Current law requires people who are wheelchair-bound to use only state-licensed ambulettes when visiting their healthcare providers. House Bill 195 gives those individuals the option to use other modes of transportation, such as Uber, Lyft or taxis, in non-emergency situations, thus expanding their choices.


It also would work to lower costs, as the cost of transport by ambulette is considerably more expensive than the cost of using these other services.


“The reduction in burdensome regulations allows members of our communities to take advantage of other means of transportation while still having mobility, as well as decreasing their financial burdens by having options,” said Rep. Anielski.


House Bill 195 passed the House unanimously and now heads to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
