Example #1: If you are the patient traveling with your spouse and 2 children, if eligible and approved, you would receive a travel incentive to attend of $1,250 to be used on travel.
($500 for you and $250 x 3 household members = $1,250)
After booking your tickets with our corporate travel partner, your total for your tickets comes to $900, leaving you a remaining travel incentive of $250. This amount will be provided to you directly to help cover the cost of a rental vehicle as well as bag fees, travel incidentals, etc upon arrival to your retreat.
Example #2: You have the same family configuration and are awarded the same amount for travel as example #1= $1,250. You book your travel arrangements, and the total cost is $1,300. The travel agency will credit your account $1,250 as per your award allotment and you would be responsible to pay for the remaining $50.
Incentive to attend awards are awarded ONLY for individuals that qualify for eligibility in your household with approved documentation.
Funding is limited and is not guaranteed. The Travel Incentive Program is based on the availability of funds and the approved documented financial need.
