About the Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) Industry – The NEMT industry provides a critical non-ambulance transportation link between patients and their medical care needs, including appointments with physicians and other services, such as dialysis, diagnostic tests or wound care.
17,000+ companies in the NEMT industry provide millions of transports annually for patients, typically for pre-scheduled services. However, it's estimated that missed appointments due to a lack of transportation cost the U.S. healthcare system billions of dollars per year. The medical transportation industry is rapidly expanding to meet this need.
