Standard NEMT & EMT models utilize a fixed fleet of commercial vehicles and drivers. When demand is low, providers have a surplus of vehicles on the road. When demand is high, these fixed fleets have a hard time scaling. Unlike a fixed fleet, our flexible fleet model ensures that we can scale our transportation capacity in response to changing demand. Whether demand is high or low, our automated supply system will manage and maintain the proper driver/vehicle supply in all of our service areas ensuring that there is always a driver available to get our members to their appointments on time.
Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT/NET) is a Medicaid benefit offered to those who have no other means of getting to their medical appointments. The health insurance providers then partner with us to coordinate, schedule and deliver transportation services to their members.
EpicMD ensures that each member receives punctual transportation by means of the most appropriate mode. We do not own a fleet of vehicles, rather we utilize a large network of drivers across all of our service areas. Health plans benefit from flat-rate trips, not having to invest staff and time to manage NEMT, increased customer satisfaction and improved health outcomes.
Each year, 25% of ambulance claims are inappropriately utilized or billed, costing health plans $500 million a year in unnecessary expense. EpicMD provides complete claims management and adjudication. By implementing comprehensive eligibility confirmation and prior authorization determination, EpicMD is able to root out fraud and abuse saving health plans up to 25% in Emergent and Non-Emergent Ambulance claims.
In addition, we are fully equipped to provide Basic and Advanced Life Support, Bariatric Transportation and Critical Care Transportation during emergency transport. Free up your internal staff and enjoy substantial healthcare funding by partnering with EpicMD for your EMT needs.
