CMS Releases Information Bulletin on Non-emergency Medical Transport

Because non-emergency medical transportation is an important support that our members offer to people with disabilities, we flag this announcement from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services:

“The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a Center Informational Bulletin (CIB) that provides states with details on section 209 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, regarding Medicaid coverage of certain medical transportation. This section codifies in law the longstanding CMS interpretation that generally requires states to assure necessary transportation for beneficiaries to and from covered services which helps to remove transportation barriers for people with Medicaid seeking needed healthcare.
