LogistiCare And Lyft Announce Nationwide Partnership

 Partnership aims to improve healthcare access through innovative transportation solutions for private, commercial and government assisted riders

ATLANTA/SAN FRANCISCO, February 7, 2017 – LogistiCare, the nation’s largest non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) manager, and Lyft, announced a three-year nationwide partnership to improve transportation solutions for private, commercial and government assisted riders seeking healthcare appointments and social programs.

The partnership enables collaboration in 31 of LogistiCare’s states and the District of Columbia, and represents Lyft’s most significant NEMT partnership.  Lyft and LogistiCare have collaborated in a unique way – the companies have developed an integrated solution using both LogistiCare’s proprietary platform and Lyft’s API for a comprehensive solution to address riders’ needs.  With LogistiCare managing over 69 million non-emergency medical transportation trips for over 27 million riders per year, the partnership improves LogistiCare’s current network capacity to ensure industry-leading NEMT services for its Commercial, Medicare and Medicaid plan members.  The partnership allows eligible riders to request on-demand services provided by Lyft through LogistiCare’s Commercial, State and Managed Care Organization clients for a focused and appropriate segment of their population in real-time.
