Partnership With State Will Assure Medicaid Members With Chronic Conditions Have Access To Quality Healthcare
ATLANTA, GA – LogistiCare, the nation’s largest non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) broker, today announced it was awarded a three-year contract with a three-year option by the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (VA DMAS) to continue managing NEMT services for Fee for Service (FFS) Medicaid-eligible individuals.
“LogistiCare has worked closely with the Department of Medical Assistance as its managed care program has evolved over seventeen years,” said LogistiCare CEO Jeff Felton. “The FFS program is dedicated to serving individuals with chronic conditions and arranging transport to and from more than 865 medical facilities throughout the state. We are honored they have extended the relationship and look forward to fulfilling our responsibilities to people in need.”
In 2018, LogistiCare will expand GPS tracking in nearly 2,000 vehicles throughout the state, allowing real-time monitoring of vehicle location and driving speeds. Currently, more than 500 vehicles use LogistiCare’s WellRyde tracking software or other GPS tracking to optimize trip routes. The company expects roughly 90 percent of vehicles will utilize some form of tracking technology by the end of 2018 resulting in safe, timely access to healthcare and improving oversight of transportation providers.
