In Nashville, TN, Neighborhood Health, a nonprofit organization that serves patients regardless of their ability to pay, partners with the city’s transit organization to get people to appointments.
TRB's Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) has released the Handbook for Examining the Effects of NEMT Brokerages on Transportation Coordination. Because the Medicaid program is administered by states, which are able to set their own rules within federal regulations and guidelines set by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), coordination of NEMT with public transit and human services transportation is highly dependent on each state Medicaid agency’s policies and priorities. This report provides background information about NEMT and describes the different models available to states for providing NEMT for Medicaid beneficiaries. The handbook also discusses why human services transportation and public transportation providers encourage coordination of NEMT with other transportation services. The report is accompanied by a companion document that explores the state-by-state profiles for examining the effects of NEMT brokerages on transportation coordination.
