Terms of service.
1. Provision of Services
1.1 Services. Subject to the terms and conditions herein, SR will provide certain services to enable our Customers to arrange for and schedule patient transportation with certain non-emergency third-party providers (“Third-Party Provider”) under agreement with SafeRide Health (“SR”) (collectively, the “Services,” and including without limitation all features, contents and applications, such as the SafeRide Health mobile application, to facilitate the provision of the Services).
Patients. Customer hereby represents and warrants that for each person for whom any protected health information may be accessed as a result of the provision of Services, that Customer has obtained all required consents and releases to enable SR to provide the Services.
License. For the time period that Customer is granted access to, and uses the computer system used by SR to provide the Services (the “SafeRideManager® System”), SR hereby grants Customer a non-exclusive, nontransferable license for Customer for access and use of the SafeRideManager® System solely in connection with the provision of the Services.
Choice of Transportation. Customer may choose at their discretion Lyft, NEMT Transportation or other non-emergency Third-Party Providers made available through the SafeRideManager® System:
NEMT Transportation. In the event Customer chooses to use NEMT Transportation (“NEMT”), Customer acknowledges the following:
NEMT is "door-to-door transportation," which means providing through prearranged appointment safe escort from departure point, into and out of a transport vehicle and to the door of the destination.
NEMT drivers are required to possess all medical certifications or specialty training required by the State in which services are provided.
NEMT providers are required to maintain all additional insurance coverage required for NEMT by the State in which services are provided.
Customer accepts NEMT’s Terms of Service.
By offering the NEMT Option, SR is not endorsing NEMT or implying affiliation with NEMT other than as independent contractor whereby SR is offering the NEMT option to Customer as an alternative means of transport.
Lyft. In the event Customer chooses Lyft, Customer acknowledges the following:
Lyft is "curb-to-curb transportation,” which means providing, through prearranged appointment, safe escort from departure point, into and out of a transport vehicle and to the curb of the destination. It is not a "door-to-door" transportation service.
Lyft drivers are not required to have medical certifications or specialty training required by the state in which services are provided for NEMT such as CPR/BLS and the like. As such, Customer should not select the Lyft Option if there is any need for assistance during the transport, and further affirms that Customer shall be solely responsible for selection of the most appropriate mode of transportation.
Lyft drivers are not required to maintain additional insurance coverage required for NEMT by the State in which services are provided.
Customer accepts Lyft’s Terms of Service (at https://www.lyft.com/terms)
By offering the Lyft Option, SR is not endorsing Lyft or implying affiliation with Lyft other than as independent contractors whereby SR is offering the Lyft Option to Customer as an alternative means of transport.
The list of Third-Party Providers available through the SafeRideManager® System may change from time-to-time at SR’s sole discretion. The applicable conditions for these other Third-Party Providers will be made available if and when they are listed with the SafeRideManager® System.

Customer is subject to laws governing confidentiality of health information, and is a covered entity under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA") which creates specific obligations upon the Customer with respect to such information. As this Agreement provides for services which may result in access to protected patient and/or health information, Customer acknowledges and agrees that this Agreement may be terminated and/or modified by SR, at any time if regulations are adopted, enacted or promulgated which require, in SR’s sole discretion, termination or modification of the Services SR provides, or the SafeRideManager® System.
