WellFirst Health — Provided by SSM Health Plan — partners with Lyft to do the driving

Lyft rides are currently available to members

We know that getting access to care when you need it is important, which is why we are proud to work together with Lyft. Please follow these steps to learn how to add your new Lyft Pass Code to your mobile device (Apple or Android).

If you haven't received your mobile app code for free rides to medical appointments, please contact our Customer Care team between 8 am and 4:30 pm Monday-Friday.


Lyft is taking extra precautions during the COVID-19 crisis; review their guidelines before scheduling. Free Lyft rides are available to Medicare Advantage and Individual plan members only.

What you need to know

  • Lyft Passes provided by WellFirst Health — Provided by SSM Health Plan — are for medical rides only.
  • Your new Lyft code can only be used in your Lyft mobile account. Do not share your code. Once your code is redeemed, it cannot, and should not, be used in any other account.
  • Each month, your code is re-loaded with credit to get you to all the rides you need for the month.
  • You will be required to enter a credit card to keep on file in order to register for a Lyft account. However, you will not be charged for any rides while using the Lyft Pass for medical rides.
