NEMT Travel: The Best Alternative
We are all familiar with the correct procedure of events when we are involved in or auxiliary to an emergency: call 9-1-1. Then comes the ambulance, the sirens, the spinning lights that rush us through the dark city to the bright hospital. But what about medical transportation when it isn’t an emergency?
It is not uncommon for people to require a trip from their home to a hospital or doctors office for a routine medical examination, physical therapy, observation, or some other pressing, but not urgent, matter. While many people are able to transport themselves, it is the case that many more are unable to drive due to medical conditions or some other hinderance. For those in this situation, the options seem few, and if family or friends are not able to provide the necessary transport the options become even more bleak.
Except that they don’t have to be.
Many in the Bay Area are familiar with NLS as a source of transportation to and from entertainment venues, sports arenas, or other events, but did you know that NLS also provides Non-Emergency Medical Transportation?
