Stakeholders Urge Congress To Reject Bill That Would Eliminate NEMT Benefit

Inside Health Policy | May 30, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C., – A broad group of 49 advocates and transportation stakeholders is urging Congress to oppose legislation that would allow states to eliminate non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) for all Medicaid beneficiaries including people with disabilities, children, older people eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid and dialysis patients.

The bill, H.R. 1394, would eliminate the requirement, in place since the program’s inception that ensures beneficiaries without access to transportation can travel to and from necessary healthcare services.

While the service is reserved for those most in need, the roughly ten percent of Medicaid beneficiaries that require assistance with transportation utilize it often to access chronic care or preventive services. FOR THE FULL STORY>

Medical service provider journeys to the cloud for more flexibility

By Nelson Williams  | May 2, 2017

Each business has its own reasons for coming to the cloud. For many, the benefits lie in scaling and automation. Unlike on-premises data centers, the cloud scales easily by simply buying more compute. Services in the cloud handle tasks across all the company’s data. One company taking advantage of these benefits is LogistiCare Solutions LLC, which partnered with information technology consulting firm Vizuri to execute the digital transformation.

To explain the company’s journey to the cloud and the critical evolution this move enabled, Michael Quintero, enterprise solutions architect at LogistiCare Solutions, and Joe Dickman, senior vice president at Vizuri, spoke with Stu Miniman (@stu) and Dave Vellante (@dvellante), co-hosts of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE’s mobile live-streaming studio, during the Red Hat Summit in Boston, Massachusetts.

Rideshare partnerships help patients get to doc on time

By Maria Castellucci  | April 20, 2017

No-show appointments are one of the healthcare industry’s conundrums—costing physician practices millions of dollars per year.

Roughly 3.6 million people miss necessary medical care every year because they can’t get to their appointments. These patients are usually low-income individuals with chronic conditions who live in rural or urban areas.

In an effort to decrease the number of no-show visits, the non-emergency medical transportation industry has found rideshare companies to be helpful partners.

Traditionally, NEMTs contract with taxi companies to provide patients with rides to scheduled doctors appointments. Medicaid and some Medicare Advantage and commercial plans reimburse NEMTs for the rides.

But that model is plagued with inefficiencies, NEMT leaders say. NEMTs don’t have the technology to make sure taxi drivers pick up patients on time and take them to the right place. Patients are often left waiting far too long for their ride and still miss appointments as a result.

NEMT leaders say the rideshare model addresses these issues. These companies increasingly are trying to partner with rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft to provide quicker, more reliable transportation to patients. Rideshare companies offer the needed technology that tracks their drivers and books appointments in real-time.

By National Kidney Foundation  | March 22, 2017

NEW YORK CITY, March 22, 2017 – For the annual kickoff of Kidney Walk events in March, the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is setting one of its highest goals yet – $10,000,000 – based on record-breaking corporate team fundraising in 2016 led by LogistiCare.

The nation’s largest non-emergency medical transportation manager has emerged as NKF’s first company to raise more than $100,000 through a single year of Kidney Walks. LogistiCare is one of eight National Teams that encourage Kidney Walk fundraising and participation across multiple cities and states.

“We are so appreciative of the support LogistiCare has provided to our Kidney Walks across the country,” said Kevin Longino, CEO of National Kidney Foundation. “LogistiCare’s ongoing commitment to people with kidney disease, both in their business and in their charitable contributions, is an example of good corporate citizenship at its best,” added Longino.

LogistiCare’s commitment to helping people fight kidney disease is rooted in its core mission. Each year, LogistiCare enables more than 13 million trips to dialysis centers – some 20 percent of the nearly 70 million healthcare trips it manages annually for private, commercial and government-assisted riders.  FOR THE FULL STORY>
