MTM recently teamed up with the UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Wisconsin to expand NEMT services to cover trips for lead testing.

Increasing Access to Lead Testing Clinics in Wisconsin

MTM is committed to enhancing health outcomes by removing barriers in the communities we serve. Recently, we collaborated with the UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Wisconsin to expand non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) services to cover trips for lead testing in Milwaukee.

As part of the initiative, UnitedHealthcare collaborated with the MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary, which works with the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to facilitate free lead testing clinics for children under the age of 10. Working with UnitedHealthcare and MTM, the Sanctuary has reached its goal of testing 1,000 children per year for blood lead levels.

As Program Manager Katie Doss said, coverage of transportation is critical to meeting the Sanctuary’s testing goals and ensuring the health of children:

“Transportation is an essential tool that is so needed. It’s a miracle. It’s a blessing. Moving ahead for 2024, this will help us with our goal to test 1,000 children. This is one of the biggest milestones. I can’t begin to tell you how much it means to us. It’s remarkable.”

Thank you to the Sanctuary and UnitedHealthcare for allowing MTM to help increase access to this important testing service! Click here to read more about the initiative.
