For people who are not in an emergency situation, but still requires specialized assistance and equipment that most transportation options cannot offer, non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) is the solution. Statistics show that 25% of patients miss a medical appointment due to transportation problems. For these people, NEMT services are a necessity.
For example, imagine if you are scheduled for a dialysis appointment. While you may be able to drive to the dialysis center, the procedure may leave you weak afterward, rendering you unable to drive. All of your family and friends have important obligations, and even if they didn’t, none of them have cars that can support your wheelchair. So, how can you get to and from your appointment? This is where Good Hands Medical Transportation LLC, a dependable source of medical transportation in Texas, can help.
Here are a few ways that NEMT services can help people who require regular dialysis treatments:
- Safety. One of the biggest benefits of NEMT services is the safety it can offer to patients. As you know, going through dialysis treatments can leave you weak and vulnerable. When you are in this state, it is not safe for you to travel using traditional means, much less drive yourself. However, with our NEMT services, you don’t have to worry about driving or using public transport – we will provide the transportation you need and ensure that you can safely travel to and from your home to the dialysis center and vice versa.
- Regular, Dependable Services. Typically, dialysis treatments are done several times per week. This means that you also need a regular, dependable mode of transportation that can take you to your appointments each time. To ensure that you always have transportation assistance when you need it, our NEMT services are the best option for you. We can schedule our services to meet your needs. If necessary, we can set up transportation services several times each week to accommodate your dialysis appointment schedule. By doing this, you no longer have to worry about finding transportation every time you need treatment because we are already there to help you.
If you are looking for a safe, reliable way to get to and from your dialysis and other medical appointments, NEMT is the ideal transportation service for you.
