MaineCare Non-Emergency Transportation Stakeholders Forum

July 21, 2011

On Monday, August 1, 2011, there will be a Stakeholders Forum on the MaineCare Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT)project. The forums will be held from 9:00 a.m. until noon at the Augusta Civic Center.

The topic will be the Department of Health and Human Services' redesign of the NEMT program. This session will provide an overview and update for interested parties on the current direction, status and proposed structure of the NEMT Initiative. The main objective of the forum is to update interested parties on model design developments and gather suggestions and feedback to aid the Department for the anticipated issuance of a NEMT brokerage Request for Proposal in the late summer/ early fall of 2011.

Space is limited, so attendees are asked to RSVP to Shannon Martin at shannon.martin@maine.gov by July 28, 2011, to reserve a seat. Organizations are encouraged to limit participation to three representatives per party. Other questions related to this NEMT initiative should be directed to Michelle Probert at michelle.probert@maine.gov.
