Examining the Effects of Separate Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) Brokerages on Transportation Coordination

The objectives of this research are to present options for providing Medicaid-funded Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) services and evaluate the effects of different options for providing NEMT on: (1) access to Medicaid services; (2) human services transportation (in particular, coordinated transportation services); and (3) public transit services, including ADA complementary paratransit services. The key audiences for this research include state-level policymakers and program administrators and other stakeholders affected by the different options for providing NEMT services. The research has been completed and will be published in the Spring 2018.
