Medicaid Non-Emergency Transportation – Dialysis Treatment and Diabetes Related Wound Care

Representatives Carter (GA), Bishop (GA), and Cardenas (CA) have written the HHS Secretary requesting removal of inflexible Medicaid limitations to non-emergency transportation for persons dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid requiring dialysis or diabetes-related wound care treatment. If HHS does not act, the Representatives will re-introduce their legislation from September 2022 (HR 8841). AAHD has worked with a coalition of disability and health organizations, led by Simon and Company, for several year advocating for Medicaid funding of non-emergency health transportation. Available here are: the Reps Feb 15 letter to HHS and the cover page of HR 8841.
