Generally, non-emergency patients, senior citizens, and rural residents benefit from non-emergency medical transit. People in need of physical therapy, chemotherapy, and others use this service. The patients need regular medical check-ups and have to meet medical appointments. For-example, moving patients from one hospital to another. In rural regions, the availability of transportation is often limited. Therefore, NEMT Software is very useful to them.
Transportation dispatching software is developed on the basis of various factors. There are several factors such as fuel mileage and vehicle type etc. that are important in determining the bill. To elaborate more, the billing for non-emergency medical transportation can vary by its contract type, and on the basis of the miles. Total mileage for each trip is an important factor in calculating the bill. Moreover, the people on board other than the driver such as medical attendants or other health workers increase the cost as compared to normal ride.
In light of the above paragraph, vehicle type is also a significant factor in billing. For-example, ambulances have higher rates than taxis due to more equipment for patient care. While some NEMT vehicles come with private bathrooms and beds. In some cases, NEMTs appoint two drivers to cover long-distance trips. This is also an important part of the billing process.
NEMT bills also depend upon the type of transportation. Ground transportation is the most common type of non-emergency transportation necessities. However, some NEMTs even provide non-emergency air transport or cruise ships, etc. Some NEMTs have a contract with state or private brokerages. For example, Medicaid or any other contracted organization. Cost of fuel, staffing and vehicle maintenance are also crucial to consider while setting prices or fees with facilities, for which, you may have to bill them on a monthly or on weekly basis. Therefore, you may send bills and invoices to your contractors. Payments may depend on facilities and who you contract with. The NEMT Software considers almost every important factor with detail and precision to ensure effective billing.
