NEWS: Brooklyn NEMT Companies Join Together Against LogistiCare Brokerage

NEW YORK - On May 1, 2012, LogistiCare began a 3 year, $80 million contract with the state to manage and coordinate all Medicaid transportation trips in Brooklyn with plans to expand the service throughout the 5 boroughs of New York City by the end of the year. Ambulette companies have charged that LogistiCare has given them less business, has been late in issuing payments, and the promised call center is not yet operational. In response to these problems, a number of the local non-emergency medical transportation service providers have banded together to form the Ambulette ParaTransit Coalition to make their concerns known to LogistiCare and the New York State Department of Health, and to provide a forum for others such as patients and physicians to do the same as the 58 ambulette companies currently represented. To learn more about the current situation see: Ambulettes' Dispatch Woe (NY Post), and for background you can checkout my post: What is LogistiCare?

Could someone comment on how much logisticare normally pays per mile for wheel chair and non wheel chair service. How many trips are you guaranteed from logisticare per day. And is it possible to make a living from just two vans in the state of va. thanks in advance...
