The Bureau for Medical Services recognizes three types of transportation services:
- air ambulance;
- ground ambulance; and
- non-ambulance, non-emergency medical transportation.
Arrangements for non-emergency, non-ambulance transportation of Medicaid members will be made by BMS’ contracted statewide transportation broker, Medical Transportation Management, Inc. (MTM). MTM screens non-emergency transportation requests and arranges transportation services to Medicaid eligible medical services for Medicaid members when they have no other access to transportation.

Non-emergency, non-ambulance transportation (NEMT) Information for Providers
- The gas mileage reimbursement rate for
non-emergency transportation (NEMT) will be reduced from 54 cents to 47 cents
per mile for all trips made on or after June 1, 2017.
The West Virginia Department of Health and Human
Resources (DHHR), Bureau for Medical Services (BMS) agreed to the rate change
requested by the NEMT broker, MTM, since the vendor has agreed to a no cost
extension of the current contract during the re-procurement of the NEMT
- This returns the mileage reimbursement to the
rate that was in effect at the time the initial contract was awarded in 2014.
MTM provided notice to Medicaid members/providers
currently utilizing mileage reimbursement and posted notice on their website
during the month of May.
