When it comes to choosing a provider of non-emergency medical transportation services, there are several aspects that need to be consider. The most important consideration, in this regard is ensuring that you get the most professional and caring service for your loved one.
Calculating the Cost of NEMT
When looking for a good NEMT service provider, you need to ensure that you get the safe and caring option rather than the cheapest. The total cost for NEMT services depends on many factors including the distance of the medical transport, the medical condition of the patient, and medical equipment needed.
It is important to ensure when calling for a quote you include information such as, Patients weight, medical condition, known medical equipment, and the destination they are coming from and going to. Transport Coordinators will then decide on the best method of medical transportation for you r loved one or patient and collect a quote for the transport.
Does Medicare Cover NEMT?
According to the information found on their website, Medicare may cover for limited NEMT services. For Medicare to cover this, several conditions have to be met, including:
If such conditions are met, Medicare may cover the cost of NEMT. However, Medicare does not cover for non emergency medical transportation to and from follow up checkups with your doctor. In such cases, you will need to pay for your state to state medical transport.
IS NEMT Covered By Private Insurance?
While the law requires insurance carriers to cover emergency ambulance services, most private insurance covers do not include NEMT. The private insurance plans that cover NEMT cost are the ones that have this benefit included in the subscriber’s plan.
