South Carolina Non-Emergency Medicaid Transportation (NEMT)
American Medical Response, Incorporated, operating as Access2Care in South
Carolina, has terminated their contract with South Carolina Department of Health
and Human Services (SCDHHS) for the Non-Emergency Medical Transportation
Program (NEMT). Effective December 22, 2011, Access2Care began its 60-day
transition plan to exit the state by February 21, 2012.
Effective February 21, 2012, LogistiCare Solutions, LLC will begin covering the
two (2) regions currently operated by Access2Care. At that time LogistiCare will
be responsible for all three (3) NEMT regions in the state. During the 60-day
transition period, transportation providers are expected to perform business as
usual. SCDHHS is monitoring activities to ensure a smooth transition with no
disruption to the current level of services being rendered.
A second Medicaid Bulletin will be released that includes contact information and
the website address for LogistiCare. In the interim, if you have any questions
about the NEMT Program please continue to address those concerns with your
current broker or with the staff at SCDHHS.
If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding this bulletin, they
should be directed to the Office of Hospitals and Durable Medical Equipment at
(803) 898-2665. Thank you for your continued support in the South Carolina
Healthy Connections program.
