Paratransit, or non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT), can be defined as a transportation service provided to individuals who are not in an emergency situation but need more assistance than a taxi service is able to provide. Service providers may be specially equipped to transport riders in wheelchairs or with other special needs. Paratransit offers pre-arranged rides often used for medical appointments and services.
Unlike taxi or livery services, paratransit is typically compensated by Medicaid or medical service providers. First Chicago Insurance Company’s (FCIC) paratransit coverage is designed to help meet the unique contractual requirements set forth by these organizations.
