What is NEMT? What are its benefits?

NEMT stands for Non-Emergent Medical Transportation. It is an area of medical benefits that has grown as Americans have begun to age and entitlement programs such as Medicaid have expanded. Generally, NEMT is defined as transportation services provided to patients who are not experiencing an emergency but a traditional taxi ride is an appropriate service due to physical or mobility limitations. NEMT focused companies, like Ride2MD, offer passengers of all levels of mobility a reliable option to get to their medical appointments.

The Ill and elderly, those who live in areas that lack mass transit or simply just need a helping hand getting to and from their medical appointments depend of NEMT providers and have historically become frustrated with the industry. Typically, the burden falls on family and friends but as we all work harder and longer, NEMT services become that much more vital to help solve complex healthcare challenges. Even something as simple as picking up prescriptions can be a difficult challenge to overcome for some.
