Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) Study Report

September 26, 2008

The Hilltop Institute prepared a report on Medicaid Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) in Maryland on behalf of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. House Bill 235, passed in the 2008 legislative session, mandated a study on the creation of a uniform statewide NEMT program, with findings to be reported to the legislature by October 1, 2008. Hilltop conducted the study, which evaluated the feasibility of creating a uniform statewide NEMT program in Maryland; any potential cost savings or potential for quality improvement; and the potential impact of the creation of such a program on local health departments. To conduct the study, Hilltop surveyed local jurisdictions and state administrators of NEMT programs across the country, and assured stakeholder involvement by presenting the study design and incorporating comments gathered at an NEMT stakeholder’s meeting, the Medicaid Advisory Committee, and the Money Follows the Person Committee.
