appointments. The logic in giving free transportation to Medicaid recipients is preventive care. Obviously, Medicaid will not reimburse for personal errands or outings - only medical related appointments.
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 their Medicaid transportation to brokers in an effort to reduce cost. The brokers then become charged with managing all aspects of the non-emergency medical transportation process - customer intake, provider onboarding, fleet and driver management and oversight, payment processing, and more.
Because Brokers are the middleman, they are directly part of the non-emergency medical transportation equation which means, as you can imagine, their "fingers can get a bit sticky!" More specifically, they can keep too much for themselves and squeeze transportation providers. For this reason, it's all the more important that you follow the strategies and principles that I share in my ebook, videos, and associated materials.
I'm not against signing up with various Medicaid brokers as long as their rates of reimbursement are profitable! Not all brokers are the same. You need to be prepared to pushback when necessary, cut them off if they prove overbearing, slow payers, or they prove to be a hassle on money owed.
As I'm sure you'll quickly gather from my material,
I'm all about empowering YOU, the motivated business owner. We're in business to make more money, establish financial freedom and independence, and the last thing we want to do is enslave ourselves by being controlled by an overbearing broker that offers low rates of reimbursement. Therefore, as I routinely share and warn everyone when it comes to Medicaid broker, BEWARE! Don't ever let them (or anyone) take advantage of you!
