NEMT Doctor Visit Transportation
When we think of medical transportation, we often think of ambulances and hospitals. But did you know that there is a ground transportation alternative for those who are facing a non-emergency scenario but still need to get to the hospital? NEMT, short for Non-Emergency Medical Transportation, is an alternative created for folks who need to visit the doctor but don’t need the lights, sirens, and cost associated with traveling via ambulance.
While many people have the ability to take a taxi, public transport, or have someone to take them to the doctor, there are many more who are unable to take advantage of these options. For this reason, many of us - especially if we are only going in for a routine checkup or some other simple sort of examination - avoid going to the doctor altogether.
Unfortunately, this situation can lead people into dire consequences.
By not visiting the doctor when symptoms first manifest themselves, it is easy (especially for the elderly of those whose immune systems are already compromised), to find oneself in a situation of worsening health, transforming what started off as a benign and treatable issue into one of stunning gravity.
