Should ride-sharing be added to a healthcare benefit plan?

April 3, 2019

As the public discourse continues to focus on the high cost of healthcare, an increasing number of payers and healthcare organizations are turning to ride-sharing services such as Uber or Lyft for non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT). In fact, Lyft reports that nearly one-third of its passengers use the service to get to or from a medical-related appointment. The healthcare industry has also seen the emergence of a number of third-party companies, such as Circulation and Roundtrip. These companies aim to manage the NEMT experience between patients and providers like social workers or clinics.
