What is Wheels-to-Wellness?

Wheels-to-Wellness provides travel assistance via a rechargeable payment card that eligible residents in Prince William County, the City of Manassas, and the City of Manassas Park can use to access health services.

 

Who is Eligible?

 

To qualify, applicants must be:

 

  • 80 years old or older; OR
  • Disabled as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act; AND/OR
  • Have income that is no greater than 1.9 times the federal poverty level and NOT BE eligible for Medicaid transportation services

 

In addition, the applicant must reside in Prince William County, Manassas City, or Manassas Park City, although trips do not have to begin or end in those areas.

 

How Does It Work?
