SCAT is the Medicaid Broker for two regions in Arkansas. Clients that are eligible for Medicaid transportation and have been approved are provided transportation at no cost to and from Medicaid Providers only. This does not cover transit services for personal needs.

All Medicaid recipients will make their reservations with our updated call center. Our scheduling specialists will be available Monday thru Friday, 8 am until 5 pm to assist with all your Medicaid transportation needs.

Calls for transportation will be made 48 hours in advance by calling toll free 1-800-385-9992 and speak directly with one of friendly scheduling professionals.
