Welcome to the Non-Emergency
Medical Transportation Industry, an industry that’s literally
growing by the day. How do I know? Because the elderly
population is literally in the process of doubling and
the medical industry is experiencing huge change.
Further, I know
because I started my first company, a NEMT business in
1999. Since then, I have help and untold number of transportation
providers and entrepreneurs from all across the country
to grow, build, expand and diversify their NEMT businesses.
So what is Non-Emergency
Medical Transportation (NEMT)?
Also known as an
ambulette service, NEMT is the transportation of people
in wheelchairs, stretchers or those ambulatory who need
Do NOT be
As a non-emergency medical transportation provider, you provide a critical service that helps people in need get to their medical appointments, dialysis and treatment centers, in and out of nursing, rehab, skilled care, and assisted living facilities.
Further, your service supports and sustains the daily mission of hospitals, facilities, doctor offices, and medical centers. Without you, people in need don’t get treated, residents don’t get to appointments, and facilities can?t discharge patients.
Do not confuse this high-demand service with a common senior transportation or elderly transportation service.
Trust me, I know the internet is flooded with common information regarding “how to start a senior transportation service,” but I can assure you, I am not going to waste your time or take your money attempting to teach you something that, essentially, amounts to you simply driving for Uber or Lyft.
There is no real money-making opportunity in rideshare services because you can’t scale it with such low rates of reimbursement. To the contrary, I am going to teach you how to build a real and legitimate non-emergency medical transportation company – one with increased capacity that you can grow and scale.
And here is the absolute best part. your two niche markets, the medical industry and the elderly population, are not just growing, they are exponentially booming!
Now seriously, if
you have any kind of keen business sense then these two
statistics, the growth of the elderly population and that
of the medical industry, have got to excite you and gain
But let’s discuss
in further detail why starting a NEMT business is such
a great investment for ambitious, motivated entrepreneurs.
For starters, rarely
do entrepreneurs think of this kind of business when looking
for a business opportunity. Seriously, everyone is focused
on the get-rich-quick schemes and no money down pie-in-the-sky
dreams of riches.
was the last time you heard someone say “I think I’m going
start a NEMT business?” The fact of the matter is you
probably haven’t. But you probably know someone, if not
even yourself, that has started some kind of “no money
down” real estate gig or some other online pie-in-the-sky
we are talking about a business opportunity for which
(1) your target market is booming, growing faster than
any real estate market or any other market, and (2) not
everyone knows about, let alone considers, when looking
to invest in a new business.
This is further
a great opportunity is because it is a service-based business.
There are no products to buy, store, ship or sell.
And when you follow
my strategies for success, people will be looking for
you. They will be looking for your business to meet the
needs of their loved one.
If you prepare
and operate your business properly, clients will be seeking
your service instead of you having to continuously find,
chase and solicit customers!
As I did, and so
many others, you can literally start your NEMT business
from your living room table, your home office or garage.
You are going to travel into your community to meet the
needs of your clients. You don’t need a high-priced fancy
office or an elaborate store front to encourage business.
Think about it.
What’s cheaper or more cost effective? Invest in a vehicle
that goes out into and meets the needs of your community
or invest in real estate for a retail business, franchise,
or some other traditional business idea?
And when you start
a business from home, it definitely limits your overhead
expenses which lead to a BIGGER bottom line and profitability!
Now that we’re talking
about profitability, let’s really start to talk about
Private Pay Clients:
These are clients who typically pay “out of pocket” for transportation service to and from medical appointments as well as private contracts and service agreements you cultivate with key facilities.
In building your senior transportation service, it is my hope that you build a strong foundation of private pay, contracted, and service agreement work because the rates of reimbursement tend to be higher as compared to other sources of reimbursement.
Further, private pay work empowers your service because it affords you more freedom and flexibility to establish your own terms versus having to comply with various forms of regulation from government agencies or entities.
As you will learn in my material, I encourage you to build a diverse and dynamic business model with multiple sources of profitable revenue, but if the rates of reimbursement are not profitable, you don?t provide service!
I continue to work with a growing number of client-providers who only provide private pay, contracted, and service agreement work because of the higher rates of reimbursement. For them, pursing lower forms of reimbursement simply are not worth their time. They are simply too busy cultivating private pay clients.
Private pay, contracted, and service agreement will strengthen the revenue and increase the profit margin of your medical transportation business.
In addition to receiving free healthcare, according to Article 1915 of the Social Security Act, qualifying Medicaid recipients also receive free non-emergency medical transportation to and from medical appointments. The logic for free Medicaid transportation service is out of both necessity and preventive care.
Obviously, Medicaid will not reimburse for personal errands or outings, but for medical related appointments, treatments, and therapies, transportation providers can make a lot of money.
Medicaid reimbursements are comprised of both state and federal funds. Therefore, as you can imagine, the processes, procedures, and rates of reimbursement will vary by state and even region.
An increasing number of states outsource some, if not all, of their Medicaid transportation processes to Medicaid brokers in an effort to reduce cost. Some states have multiple Medicaid brokers operating in their state.
In accordance with state mandates, Medicaid brokers establish policies and procedures and subcontract to transportation providers via Broker Agreements. The Medicaid broker is responsible for coordinating all Medicaid transportation with transportation providers in addition to overseeing provider fleet management.
Although Medicaid reimbursements can be very consistent, their per-trip rates of reimbursement tend to be lower as compared to private pay, private contracts, and private service agreement work.
This type of reimbursement is for the transportation of people hurt “on the job” and needing to get to and from physical therapy and related medical appointments. Workers Comp is one of the few forms of insurance that reimburses for non-emergency medical transportation and can be a great source of revenue.
Rates of reimbursement for workers compensation are typically higher as compared to Medicaid transportation, but not as much as private and contracted transportation.
Some workers compensation policies are managed and reimbursed directly through the underwriter while others are management and reimbursed through brokers.
The vast majority of hospitals outsource assisted transportation needs to local vendors and providers. They are critical strategic partners for your business and offer a wide variety of non-emergency medical transportation opportunities.
Hospitals provide “general” discharges and emergency room discharges. They can also provide inpatient transportation to and from other facilities and doctor offices for specific test and treatments outside the hospital.
For senior transportation providers serious about building a legitimate business that can be grown, scaled, and sold for a future profit, establishing strong working relationships with hospitals and their supply chain management is a must.
In order to ensure adequate coverage and access to reliable wheelchair and stretcher transportation for their patients, a growing number of hospitals and emergency departments are willing to consider contracts and service agreements with area providers.
There are a wide variety of facilities offering different levels of care that require assisted transportation to meet the needs of their residents. Skilled care and rehabilitation facilities are a “staple” for the non-emergency medical transportation industry. Why? Because they are literally caring for your most important niche market – the elderly population!
Other facilities and retirement communities offering assisted and independent living services might provide transportation with their own vehicle(s), but frequently their service only operates a few days per week and during specific times. Therefore, it is very possible to position your senior transportation service as a “support” or “secondary” solution to further accommodate resident needs.
Like hospitals, skilled care, rehab, and even assisted living facilities can provide you with outstanding transportation opportunities. You will typically transport residents to medical appointments, dialysis, therapy, ambulatory surgery, outpatient services, and much more. You can even partner with Activity Departments to accommodate group outings for special events.
There is probably no other source of revenue that is more predictable and stable than dialysis clients – bottom line. Because the vast majority of dialysis patients require treatment three days per week, regardless of holidays or weather, I refer to them as the “Golden Grail” because they are consistent money-makers!
For dialysis patients, treatments are mandatory – a medical necessity. Hence, underscoring why your medical transportation service is both weather and recession-proof. It doesn’t matter if it’s down pouring or if the economy is down, dialysis patients still have to get their appointments.
Many dialysis patients will be private pay while others are on Medicaid. Although the rates of reimbursement for private pay patients will typically be higher as compared to those on Medicaid, dialysis patients on Medicaid typically remain profitable. They offer volume and regularity with appointments being scheduled every other day in intervals of 3-4 hours. Such transports allow you to better plan and prepare your logistics and reimbursements.
Rest assured, non-emergency medical transportation is not just for the elderly. In fact, there are students of all ages needing your assistance to get to and from school, college, and university.
Did you ever consider how disabled students get to school if they can’t ride a typical school bus? Obviously, school districts are in need of assisted transportation service for students of all ages – typically issuing multi-year Requests for Proposal (RFPs) to interested transportation providers.

I’m often asked:
“Joel, I have competitors in my area. Do I really have an opportunity?”
Yes! In fact, the level of competition is a great measure to the growing opportunity. Your competitors aren’t working for free! Even more, consider hospitals, nursing homes, skilled care facilities, assisted and independent living facilities in your community. How about dialysis centers, ambulatory surgery, physical therapy clinics and doctor offices. If you have such facilities in your community, then opportunity is staring you in the face!
Again, if you have competitors, they’re NOT working for FREE! Your competitors are busy making money, so the question begs, why aren’t you? Why aren’t you busy cutting a slice of the profitable pie?
And think about this
The further the transport in terms of distance and time, the more money you’ll make! Transports include the following :
Standard Pickup Fees (Wheelchair, Stretcher or Ambulatory)
Wait Time Fees
After-Hour Fees (Evenings, Weekends, and Holidays)
Let me also add,
in speaking from first-hand experience, transports after
hours, on weekends and holidays always generate more money!
Are you starting
to see the BIG picture? Trust me – I’m just scratching
There are so many
other ways to make money in the NEMT industry as you’ll
continue to learn in my ebook, newsletter and associated
materials. The opportunities are wide and diverse.
Bottom line, the
NEMT business IS recession-proof its NOT going anywhere!
Demand and opportunity are only going to continue to increase.
Think of other businesses
that are market dependent. Consider real estate for example.
The real estate
market has been in the tank and every business associated
with this industry has been adversely affected in some
capacity at some point in time!
But with the NEMT
industry, it doesn’t matter what the economy is doing
– patients on dialysis or radiation could care less if
it’s a “bull” or “bear” market. Whether the market is
up or down, patients have to get to their medical appointments!
Likewise with hospitals,
Emergency Rooms, discharges, and the like – when it’s
time to go, YOU GOTTA GO!

Although the NEMT
industry is growing and is in high demand, it’s NOT a

community. You will be helping clients, hospitals, nursing
facilities, doctor offices, treatment centers and the
like. You are literally helping these facilities to accomplish
their daily missions.
Think about it
Without your service, how would doctors see their elderly
and disabled clients? How would these patients even get
to the doctors? How would hospitals empty their beds to
make room for new patients? Without your services, their
operation would come to a screeching halt!
The list goes on,
and on, and on .
Your NEMT business
can become a fixture within your community for which you
literally leverage to further grow, network and build
awesome relationships and partnerships.

the transportation provider, we do bring a great deal
of help and assistance to our clients. And honestly, bringing
