Accessible Medical Transportation Services in Phoenix

Metro Phoenix Locals & Visitors Alike Need Safe Transportation

Phoenix is known for accessible and ADA-compliant attractions and accommodations. But with the high demand and other contributory factors, it can sometimes be tough to get to doctor’s appointments and other medical transportation needs.

For this reason, reliable alternatives to conventional ambulances (which are usually reserved for emergencies) are made available for those who are using wheelchairs, stretchers, and other mobility devices.

What is Non-Emergency Medical Transportation?

Non-Emergency Medical Transportation or NEMT includes all transportation services for non-emergency situations which do not require an ambulance. A great NEMT service isn’t just a simple car ride but a whole slew of accessibility and accommodations for people who need it whether they’re older adults or people living with disabilities. 

The American Hospital Association notes that 3.6 million individuals miss medical care each year due to transportation issues, including a lack of accessible vehicles. Transportation is the third most commonly cited barrier to accessing health services for older adults. Missing out on timely medical attention through appointments can be detrimental to your quality of life.
