The Department of Health recently announced LogistiCare Solutions was awarded a contract to manage the transportation needs of New York City Medicaid enrollees. LogistiCare will manage transportation for ADHC programs that currently use Method 2 transportation and any program that orders transportation to a medical appointment. For your convenience, the announcement is provided as an attachment to this memo.
For those Medicaid enrollees not covered by a managed care plan, orders for transportation will be phased in by borough throughout 2012.
Practitioner/Facility Location and Implementation Date:
- Brooklyn (Spring)
- Queens (Late Spring)
- Manhattan (Summer)
- Bronx (Summer)
- Staten Island (Fall)
Additionally, on January 1, 2013, LogistiCare will assume the management of transportation of enrollees covered by a managed care plan, resulting in a single process for medical practitioners and enrollees requesting transportation.
Region 7 members should plan to attend the upcoming Regional meeting held at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 16 at the Jewish Guild for the Blind, 15 W. 65th St. in Manhattan.
