Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) provides a cost-effective alternative to ambulance services for eligible customers in non-emergency situations. A customer that dials 911, and is experiencing a non-emergency, may be assessed over the phone by a registered nurse and then referred to an urgent care clinic. This customer will receive a free taxi ride to the clinic.
