What is NEMT?
NEMT is defined as a transportation service provided to individuals who are not in an emergency situation but need more assistance than a taxi service is able to provide. Often times, these services are specially equipped to transport riders in wheelchairs, stretchers or with other special needs.
Healthcare services are essential to every segment of the population. Ill or elderly people, non-drivers, those who live in areas without mass transit and people unable to use mass transit because of medical issues all may have the need for healthcare but face transportation challenges. Visiting a doctor or making other medically-related appointments suddenly becomes a point of confusion and anxiety. For those without family members or friends available for assistance, the number of options available might seem few and far between. Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) is often the only available solution to these problems.
