State of Idaho Selects MTM As New NEMT Vendor
MTM is pleased to announce our newest non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) operation: a statewide program in Idaho, serving the state’s approximately 297,000 Medicaid-eligible participants. The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare selected MTM to take over the program from its current vendor, Veyo, beginning March 6, 2018.
The contract holds an approximate value of $34 million and runs through June 2019, with an extension option of up to five additional years. MTM anticipates providing approximately 1.2 million trips to Idaho Medicaid participants annually. During the three-month implementation period leading up to the contract’s go-live, we will establish a local business office and management team in the Boise area to oversee the program.
“As Idaho’s new NEMT vendor, MTM looks forward to improving the State’s transportation program by increasing quality and efficiency, introducing industry-leading processes and expertise, and helping contain NEMT costs,” said MTM President and CEO Alaina Maciá. “We know the transition to a new vendor can be a confusing time. We have thorough plans in place to work with the State, its current vendor, transportation providers, medical facilities, and Medicaid advocates throughout the implementation period to ensure a seamless transition for the most important stakeholder group: Medicaid participants.”
