About MTM

About us header
25 years MTM logo

As one of the nation’s most experienced and qualified non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) brokers, MTM was founded in 1995 by Peg and Lynn Griswold. After realizing the difficulty health plans and government organizations had in arranging transportation services, the Griswolds were determined to develop a company that would ensure more people had access to healthcare. MTM quickly set industry standards and is now one of the largest and most established NEMT brokers, scheduling more than 20 million trips for 13.6 million members nationwide while handling eight million calls every year.

In 2020, we celebrated our 25th anniversary of removing community barriers. To this day, MTM remains a privately held “S” corporation. Additionally, we are a Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council that can help our clients meet their disadvantaged business participation goals. In addition to our national WBENC certification, MTM is a certified WBE in the following states:

  • California via the Supplier Clearinghouse for the Utility Supplier Diversity Program of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC)
  • Missouri via the Office of Equal Opportunity
  • New Jersey via the Minority and Women Certification Program
  • New York City via the Department of Small Business Services (SBS)
  • Tennessee via the Governor’s Office of Diversity Business Enterprise
  • Virginia via the Virginia Department of Small Business & Supplier Diversity Certification Team
  • West Virginia via the Department of Administration Purchasing Division

 With headquarters in Lake St. Louis, Missouri, we operate in 31 states and the District of Columbia and maintain call centers and offices across the United States.

John Irvine, Florida Commission For The Transportation Disadvantaged

MTM staff are always well informed, willing to listen and learn about local concerns, and tireless in seeking the most appropriate solution.

David Eatman, Raleigh Capital Area Transit

Thank you for your proactive measures. They certainly show MTM’s commitment to the program. MTM is always very responsive, and this is greatly appreciated.

Trudy Gidersleeve, Evergreen Commons Nursing

I highly recommend MTM. I like the new online set up they have. The set up for trips is so easy and more reliable than faxing them so they do not get lost.

    The New MTM

    While initially established for the sole purpose of managing NEMT, as MTM worked collaboratively with our clients to create customized solutions for transportation, our leadership team recognized opportunities to expand our service offerings. Leveraging our resources and experience, MTM has adapted our management model and is proud to now offer a wide array of healthcare services, as well as public transit services through our affiliate MTM Transit, that help our clients align incentives, reduce costs, and increase member and passenger satisfaction.

    By providing careful assessments, comprehensive care management, and responsible network development and oversight, MTM improves health outcomes, removes community barriers, and promotes independence.

    Our Commitment to the Environment and Sustainability

    Climate change, our environment, and sustainability efforts are growing topics of concern for many concerned Americans and businesses. At MTM, we are taking our own steps to reduce our carbon footprint and make a positive impact on our industry. Our Climate Impact Statement reflects our commitment to leading change:

    MTM supports national and global efforts to mitigate the impact of climate change, and is committed to lobbying for regulation that supports sustainability and positive impact. Working in tandem with our industry partners and peers, we’re advocating for requirements around the use of fuel efficient vehicles in the NEMT and public transit industries in our efforts to reduce vehicle emissions and promote more environmentally friendly means of transportation for our clients and passengers.

    As a reflection of our promise to deliver a long-term commitment to social responsibility to our clients, members, and community stakeholders, MTM has officially released our formal ESG Charter. The comprehensive charter supports MTM’s ongoing efforts related to environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and corporate governance (ESG). Click here to access MTM’s ESG Charter.

    Our Diversity Statement and Commitment

    Workplace Without Barriers.

    Our company will have a stronger focus than ever on diversity, equity, and inclusion. MTM values and respects employees of all ages, genders, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, abilities, and religious affiliations. We will never stop promoting equal opportunity for progress and growth for every employee.

    Cindy Mense, Children’s Mercy Family Partners

    MTM has done an excellent job of assigning the appropriate mode of transportation to our population. MTM is focused on utilizing the most efficient mode of transportation, and this is evidenced in our extremely low utilization of stretcher van, ambulance, and other higher modes of transportation.

    Kathy Miller, TriMet

    MTM staff are very helpful in establishing new processes and working closely with TriMet to make refinements and improvements that they have developed. Their team has shown a strong ability to communicate and work collaboratively with TriMet staff to determine the best transit options for our applicants.

    Barbara Mclennon, United Cerebral Palsy Of Washington, D.C. And Northern Virginia

    MTM has been a very valuable resource for our patients and staff. Our staff prefers working with MTM over other transportation mangers because of their attention to detail and personalized service.
