Non Emergency Medical Transportation Accreditation Commission (NEMTAC) Is Launching the Nation's
NEMTAC was established as a nonprofit organization to enhance and promote the quality of care in America's medical transportation system.
Mar. 26, 2018 / PRZen / SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Non Emergency Medical Transportation Accreditation Commission (www.NEMTAC.org), has launched and is now offering the only national accreditation program that represents non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) companies, agencies, groups and individuals. Comprised of both private and public organizations providing medically necessary transportation, the NEMT industry often operates under fragmented regulations and disparate operational standards. These vital transportation services serve as the safety net for Medicaid recipients, the elderly, the disabled and those with low incomes requiring access to healthcare services. NEMTAC, established as a nonprofit organization, enhances and promotes the quality of care in America's medical transportation system. NEMTAC standards will represent industry best practices to ensure consistently high-quality customer care, safe vehicle operations and ethical business practices. In addition to accreditation, NEMTAC offers basic and advanced education and training certificate programs to individuals working in and seeking a career in the NEMT industry.
Obtaining NEMTAC accreditation distinguishes an organization and signifies to its customers and stakeholders that they have met the NEMT industry standards of excellence. NEMTAC's comprehensive accreditation process often exceeds those established by state or local regulators. Those adherent and accredited bodies should see increased utilization and decreased liability and will be recognized as a market leader. NEMTAC Pursuing American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Accreditation NEMTAC has proudly applied for the coveted accreditation as an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Accredited Standards Developer. By being granted ANSI accreditation, a neutral, third-party will attest that NEMTAC is maintaining adherence to national standard development. Once approved by ANSI, NEMTAC will then be allowed to submit NEMT standards for approval as American National Standards (ANS). Such standards must demonstrate strict adherence to ANSI's Essential Requirements, which outline the Institute's requirements for openness, balance, lack of dominance, due process, and consensus in standards development.
