NEMT Hospital Transfers
Emergencies and serious accidents seldom let us know before they happen. They strike out of the blue, leaving us vulnerable and disoriented. In the moments afterwards, we make snap decisions: call 9-1-1; get medical help as soon as possible; go to whichever hospital is closest. It is only natural for our minds to funnel our vision down to contain only what is the most necessary. Unfortunately, our insurance doesn’t work the same way.
It is a sad fact that many people know the experience of being transferred to a hospital that is not within their insurance network. Many people also know the experience of waking up in a hospital after an accident, only to find themselves being handed a bill for thousands of dollars. The fact is that our current medical system is not structured with the needs of the sick and/or injured in mind, and because of this medical costs continually reach astronomical levels, especially for those of us without insurance, but even for those of use who have insurance but are forced to go somewhere not covered by this insurance for the initial medical treatment.
In these situations, hospital patients might find themselves wondering, “How do I get out of this place and into a medical facility that is covered by my insurance?” The answer lies in something called NEMT.
