Alivi Awarded Non-Emergency Medical Transportation Services Contract by AvMed

January 22, 2020 GMT

DORAL, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 22, 2020--

Alivi and AvMed announced today they have formed a new partnership for Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) services for their Medicare members. Alivi is changing the way health plans can achieve better health outcomes for their members and directly impact the transportation component of the social determinants of health (SODH).

As NEMT services continue to evolve, more health plans are contracting the service for their Medicare members. Alivi’s proprietary trip logistics platform helps provide reliable and high-quality NEMT services.

Once a trip is scheduled, it selects the nearest, most reliable driver to provide transportation to medical appointments based on the member’s needs. The platform provides different modalities of transportation, including curb-to-curb, door-to-door, wheelchairs, stretchers, basic life support and advanced life support.

To this end, Alivi has dedicated phone lines for the health plans’ members to set up the transportation, success managers working with the clinics and Management Service Organizations (MSO), as well as offers training for its logistic platform.

“We are pleased to be able to offer Non-Emergency Medical Transportation services to our Medicare members via our partnership with Alivi,” said Ian Andes, vice president of provider contracting and service at AvMed. “We feel very strongly that these services will go a long way to ensuring our members have access to the care they need. The lack of access to transportation can be a critical issue for seniors especially for those living by themselves. We are excited to partner with Alivi to help address this need with our members,” added Andes.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with AvMed. Our partnership will help reduce missed medical appointments and achieve better health outcomes,” said Magdiel Rodriguez, Alivi CEO.
