IHCP Announces Temporary Carve Out for Non-Emergency Medical Transportation for FFS Members Residing in Certain Facilities
Effective September 4, IHCP has announced a temporary carve out for certain populations from the brokered non-emergency medical transportation program run by SoutheasTrans (SET). The carve out will allow nursing facilities, assisted living facilities serving Medicaid waiver residents, Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IIDs), and certain other facility types to arrange transportation directly with any Medicaid enrolled transportation provider. The facility can also continue using SET to broker transportation.
Non-emergency medical transportion for members who receive HCBS waiver services will continue to have NEMT services scheduled and coordinated through Southeastrans.
