MTM and MTAC Celebrate the Inclusion of NEMT Legislation in the Consolidated Appropriations Act
For the past several years, MTM has worked with the Medical Transportation Access Coalition (MTAC), our fellow non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) brokers, and legislators from across the nation to introduce legislation that strengthens access to NEMT services for Medicaid members. Now, we’re excited to join MTAC in celebrating the enactment of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, which includes language that will codify the Medicaid NEMT benefit into law.
“All across healthcare, payers and providers are recognizing that transportation improves outcomes and helps contain the cost of treating chronic diseases,” said Phil Stalboerger, MTM’s Vice President of Public Affairs, in the MTAC press release on the subject. “This legislation ensures that Medicaid will continue to support efforts to help improve the health of our populations.”
