NEMT - Non Emergency Medical Transportation Services

Transportation Services
Non-Emergency Medical Transportation, or NEMT, can be used when you do not have a way to get to your healthcare appointment without charge. We may use public transportation or bus tokens, vans, taxi, or even an ambulance, if necessary to get you to your healthcare appointment. Home State will give you a ride that meets your needs. You do not get to choose what kind of car or van or the company that will give you the ride. You may be able to get help with gas costs if you have a friend or a neighbor who can take you. This must be approved before your appointment.
Who can get NEMT services? 
You must be on MO HealthNet or MO HealthNet Managed Care on the day of your appointment. People in a MO HealthNet Managed Care Health Plan get their NEMT services from the health plan. Some people on MO HealthNet or MO HealthNet Managed Care do not get NEMT services as part of their benefits. The NEMT program will let you know if your benefits do not cover NEMT. 
Children who are under age 17 must have an adult ride with them.
We will only pay for one child and one parent/guardian and/or an attendant if your child is under age 21 and needs to be away from home overnight or needs someone to be with him/her. We will not pay for other children or adults.

Call 1-866-269-5927. You must call at least 5 calendar days before the day of the appointment or you may not get NEMT. You may call this number Monday through Friday, 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. for regular scheduled appointments.
