Results from a survey conducted by Kantar Health on behalf of SK Life Science, Inc., reveal that for people with epilepsy, transportation can be a significant challenge. Some people may even be restricted from driving, depending on the severity of their seizures and where they live.

We are excited to announce our newest version of the partnership with SK Life Science, Inc., for the Uber ride-share campaign. Through this updated initiative, people with epilepsy or seizures can receive one (1) $500.00 Uber ride-share voucher every twelve (12) months to help with transportation for medical services or appointments, employment travel, and other essential appointments.

Who is Eligible?

  • Be at least 18 years of age.
  • Current resident of and residing within the United States or Puerto Rico.
  • Have a diagnosis of epilepsy or a seizure condition.
  • Ability to obtain a verifiable annual letter from treating physician:
    • The letter must be on your physician’s official letterhead.
    • The letter must indicate that you have a diagnosis of and are currently receiving treatment for epilepsy or seizures.
    • The letter must indicate that you are experiencing transportation challenges or unable to operate a motor vehicle. 
    • This letter must be dated within 30 days of the date of your Rideshare application.
  • Have a valid email address.
  • Have a valid phone number.
  • An Active Uber account, or the ability to obtain an Uber account, with a valid alternative payment method available should your ride cost exceed the cost of the voucher value.

Terms and Conditions

  1. Individuals are only eligible for one (1) voucher every twelve (12) months.
  2. Vouchers are non-transferrable. 
  3. Vouchers expire twelve (12) months after they were issued. For example, if you received your voucher in June 2024, then your voucher will expire at midnight on the last day of May 2025. 
  4. Any balance on your voucher may be lost if you do not use the entire voucher balance before the expiration date. Any balance lost cannot be transferred to any future voucher or credited to your account by Uber or the Epilepsy Foundation. 
  5. You are responsible for all account fees and any ride fees over the value of the voucher.
