NEWS: Serious Safety Concerns About LogistiCare Run Missouri Medicaid NEMT Brokerage
MISSOURI - May 15, 2012 - As a result of earlier investigative reports (LogistiCare Run NEMT Brokerage in Missouri Draws Complaints) by local television stations that looked into complaints against the LogistiCare run Medicaid Transportation brokerage, a former LogistiCare employee has come forth not only to confirm the patient's claims reported, but to reveal that LogistiCare had knowingly foregone or delayed a safety audit/inspection of the transportation service providers as stipulated in the $30 million annual contract to manage the brokerage for the State of Missouri (see: Transport Trouble Safety Questions - KCTV). After this story aired on KCTV, LogistiCare issued a response denying the accusations. It stated that LogistiCare had in fact been in touch with the reporter prior to the unannounced on-air interview shown in the video, and had at that time presented their case that the Missouri NEMT Program is being operating effectively and safely.
