What NEMT Brokers Operate in the US?

If you are a NEMT service provider or planning to become one, you should be deeply aware that NEMT Brokerages are an essential element in the NEMT chain.

Most NEMT providers rely on single or multiple brokers to acquire trips, so knowing what options about brokers you have and how you can make the best decision is fundamental for your long-term success.

NEMT Broker - What Do They Do?

NEMT Brokerage firms are directly authorized by State Medicaid Agencies (SAMs) after fulfilling specific criteria to receive trip requests from Insured citizens who need NEMT services.

After receiving a trip request from patients, NEMT brokers transfer that trip to the local NEMT provider connected to them or sign an agreement to check if the NEMT provider and its vehicles meet passenger/patient requirements.
