Why The Need for Managed Medical Transportation Logistics
Over the past two decades many states and health plans have experienced tightened budgets for Medicaid-funded programs such as NEMT and EMT. As a result, they are being faced with increasing pressure to better manage and reduce their spending on NEMT and EMT services. For many, a solution has been to adopt the outsourced-brokerage model in order to control costs, improve customer satisfaction, and ensure a uniform system for NEMT and EMT delivery.
By contracting with EpicMD, Medicaid agencies and health plans benefit by eliminating the need to invest time and staff to manage medical transportation logistics. We provide a liaison between our clients and subcontracted drivers by managing trip scheduling, service quality assurance and claims processing.
Some ways in which we provide exceptional service include:
Prior Authorization – We screen each trip request and determine patient eligibility as well as the most cost-effective and suitable mode available.
On-Time Pickup and Drop-off – Our custom software solution tracks the location of available driver and automatically assigns the nearest available driver to the ride, resulting in faster response times.
Trip Reporting – Our software automatically collects, analyzes and reports on trip data revealing ways to further optimize our process.
Rewarding High Performing Drivers – In order to encourage quality of driver performance, we utilize an incentive program to reward high performing drivers with more trips.
Flat Rate Trips – Health plans and state agencies have the option of flat rates per trip thereby containing costs and providing basis for a budget.
