Non-emergency medical transport market in the United States

Dublin, Sept. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The report “US Non-Emergency Medical Transportation Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Country Analysis – by Service Type and Application” has been added to from offer.

The US non-emergency medical transportation market is expected to grow from US$5,653.59 million in 2021 to US$10,246.73 million by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.1% from 2022 to 2028.

Factors such as the growing need for non-emergency medical transport and an increase in the incidence of chronic diseases are driving the growth of the market. However, lack of effective monitoring systems and fraud by NEMT companies is hampering the growth of the US non-emergency medical transportation market.

Non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) includes services provided to patients and healthcare consumers who need assistance getting to and from medical appointments, avoiding expensive transportation options. NEMT service providers are widely known to serve Medicaid beneficiaries. Patients who need to be transported to medical facilities for regular appointments and checkups can benefit from NEMT services which include ambulance services, wheelchair assistance services, stretchers, flight services and courier services.

As the need for patient care increases, managed care organizations are focusing on digitizing their operations. With the ongoing technological developments in this space, service providers and users are likely to benefit from the proper use of technology in NEMT solutions.

GPS tracking and e-planning software is one such innovative technology that is continuously used in NEMT by States, Brokers, MCOs, Suppliers, Drivers and Beneficiaries. In addition, the NEMT dispatch software package solution that focuses on operational care and provides reliable transportation services has become an important tool to strengthen program integrity and improve on-time performance.

The use of an ambulance in non-emergency transport for medical appointments is going to be the next revolution in the next few years. There are different types of ambulances available for medical transport, both in emergency and non-emergency situations.

As the name suggests, non-emergency ambulances are meant to transport people from a healthcare facility to their home or vice versa. These ambulances can also be used for long distance travel as there is no other transportation on the road and it is more convenient and comfortable.

One of the major future trends in non-emergency medical transportation is the increase in the number of collaborations with transport network companies. States and healthcare providers are partnering with transportation network companies (TNCs) like Uber or Lyft to improve access to care.

These TNCs are typically characterized by their on-demand carpooling capabilities and easy-to-use mobile apps that allow them to alleviate the flexibility and scheduling issues associated with NEMT services. Additionally, various transnational corporations are currently developing or engaging in partnerships with NEMT, which is expected to increase the demand for NEMT services in the United States.

The private fee-based patient transportation segment is estimated to account for the largest market share and is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Paid private patient transportation includes services such as hospital visits, pharmacy pickups, and various healthcare-related rides for Medicaid members.

Various benefits associated with paid private patient transport include personalized NEMT reimbursement rates with higher markups compared to others, ease of travel during off-peak hours in addition to normal office hours, and flexibility in the billing process compared to to Medicaid-based services.
