Commitment to community is part of who we are as an organization and what we believe in. Communities across America benefit from LogistiCare’s enrichment efforts at both a local, national, and corporate level. We’re dedicated to improving member outcomes through education and outreach, serving the underserved, and assisting with the positive transformation of health care via analytics and the identification of trends. We’re charged with making a difference. Nowhere is that impact more tangible than in our service to safeguard access to health care.
As the largest non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) manager in the country, one of our roles is to leverage data in order to examine trends and deliver insights that help impact decisions around healthcare transportation, treatment, and utilization.
Because of our significant footprint and volume, we’re the only transportation manager suited to provide the most accurate look at what’s happening in the health care industry from a transportation, treatment type, and utilization perspective. When we notice trends that could impact our members’ ability to access care, we collaborate with and educate front-line advocates to ensure they have the information required to demonstrate the needs of the market.
We provide millions of rides to and from kidney dialysis centers for our members. While we’re honored to provide such a critical service to those suffering from kidney disease, we also have a personal stake in helping improve the care and outcomes of kidney disease patients. With 1 in 3 Americans at risk for chronic kidney disease (CKD) we know that with 4,000 LogistiCare employees nationwide, a large number of our employees and their families will be affected. For us, it’s personal. That’s Why We Walk.
It’s also why LogistiCare is a corporate sponsor of the National Kidney Foundation. Our team has committed to walking in 20 cities across the country this year to support their mission. Our walk participation has grown to nearly 2,500 LogistiCare associates registered to participate in the NKF Kidney Walks in 2017. We have learned that with the right care, provided early and consistently, the progress of kidney disease can be slowed, and even reversed.

“We have a designated representative for dialysis units that is very helpful to providing quality service for our patients. This person helps us put rides in place and makes all the changes needed that is very much a part of life on dialysis… it is an important and valued service and we could never function without them. They are integral part of any dialysis unit.”
