Mileage Rate Increase - POL 15-01

ACCES-VR has increased the mileage allowance for all consumers using a personally owned motor vehicle to 100 percent of the “NYS Maximum Mileage Reimbursement Rate for Personal Car Mileage (PCM)”. Use the current rate at the time the service is authorized. The total reimbursement may be rounded up to the nearest whole cent. This change takes effect immediately.

The following web pages in the VR Policy Manual, Procedural Memos and Fiscal documents will be edited to reflect this change:

Policy 1355.00 – Transportation Services Policy
PRO-10-02 – Summary of Limits on Duration and Cost of VR Services

The following is the link to the NYS Mileage Reimbursement Rate when using a personal vehicle.
