Join the TRB for a webinar on Non-Emergency Medical Transportation on 10/25/18

Join the Transportation Research Board (TRB) for a webinar 2-3:30 p.m. ET Thursday, October 25 on Non-Emergency Medical Transportation. The Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) recently released Handbook for Examining the Effects of NEMT Brokerages on Transportation Coordination (Research Report 202), which provides background information about non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) and describes the different models available to states for providing NEMT for Medicaid beneficiaries. The handbook also discusses why human services transportation and public transportation providers encourage coordination of NEMT with other transportation services. A companion document explores state-by-state profiles of NEMT.

To learn more, join the TRB webinar, Examining the Effects of NEMT Brokerages on Transportation Coordination, which will provide information to understand what influences state Medicaid agencies to establish separate NEMT brokerages or to include NEMT as part of Medicaid managed care. The webinar will discuss the resulting effects of these trends on the coordination of human services transportation with public transportation. The presenters will identify opportunities and suggest strategies to coordinate these transportation programs to achieve common desired outcomes for providing NEMT.
