Times before COVID-19 showed that over 3.6 million Americans miss or delay medical care due to limitations and barriers concerning transportation. Non-Emergency Medical Transportation or NEMT transportation aims to reduce these limitations.
The current pandemic has slowed movement as people need to stay at home. This unfortunately meant that the numbers of missed or delayed medical appointments rose. But with NEMT, hopes for a change in this predicament are up and running. NEMT allows people who need medical care to attend their appointments and much-needed doctor’s visits. It focuses on the greater use of preventive and primary health care, lower use of emergency and inpatient services, and timely medical care. These healthcare services continue to be needed during a pandemic, especially among the chronically ill, so it is essential that access to them remain uninterrupted.
Transportation problems have indeed created irreversible dilemmas. For highly vulnerable people such as older adults living independently, using public transportation involved risking potential infection or other adverse health outcomes. Thus, transportation services, such as our ambulette service in Massachusetts, are very important in order to prevent these risks. To avoid infection due to public transportation or adverse health outcomes due to staying at home and delaying medical care, we provide solutions.
As other forms of transportation have become increasingly unavailable or unsafe during this pandemic, private NEMT is the way to go. So, if you ever need non-emergency medical transportation services in Worcester, Massachusetts, call Trinity Transport LLC! We will always be ready to help you.
