MO HealthNet reimburses eligible participants or nonemergency medical transportation (NEMT) providers for medically necessary transportation only if a participant does not have access to transportation services that are available free of charge. For more guidance on the NEMT program and its other requirements, please read the regulation (13 CSR 70-5.010) at https://www.sos.mo.gov
The MO HealthNet Division also has information about NEMT services on their website at https://dss.mo.gov/mhd/participants/pages/medtrans.htm
MO HealthNet also covers ambulance services for eligible participants if they are emergency services and transportation is made to the nearest appropriate hospital. Further information about the Emergency Ambulance Program is located in 13 CSR 70-6.010 at https://www.sos.mo.gov
MMAC encourages providers, who may call on behalf of participants, to be familiar with the program rules and requirements.
