Consistent with previous studies, results indicate that older age and the need for accompaniment from personal care assistants were more common among participants picked-up in rural areas. Alternatively, wheel chair services and NEMT for purposes other than dialysis were less common among individuals picked-up from rural locations. For example, as previously documented, individuals transported for doctor visits, substance abuse, medical specialists, rehabilitation, and testing/screening were significantly less likely to have been picked up at a rural location.
