The Complete Guide to Non-Emergency Medical Transportation

What is the Issue with Non-Emergency Medical Transportation?

The most common mode of non-emergency medical transportation is known as ambulatory transportation(sedan service). It is designed for patients who do not require specialized transportation and can walk independently or only need essential assistance. During this time of the pandemic, several providers are willing to assist patients with their medical checkups.

However, using ambulatory transportation benefits presented many difficulties for beneficiaries, one of which was the inadequacy of provider networks, which resulted in late pickups, overscheduling, and a lack of transportation availability. 

“I am a mother of a child on the autism spectrum. My family depends on NEMT’s to help with his care. I have many concerns about our ability to find a new provider should we have to transition from our current one.”

Selecting the most appropriate long- or short-distance medical transportation service to transport your loved one safely to and from a medical appointment takes time and effort, especially if you’re doing it for the first time in this situation.

AMERA comes in to assist you in selecting a non-emergency medical transport company that best meets your requirements.

 All their CNAs nationwide are readily available to assist every patient who requires a day surgery operation, whether a doctor’s visit, a primary medical transfer, or running medical errands around the neighborhood.

AMERA is committed to bridging the gap between the difficulty of obtaining dependable ambulatory transportation services and the elimination of missed appointments and inadequate illness treatment and is committed to ensuring that medical care is easily accessible to patients.
