NEMT for More Accessible Patient Transportation in Tucson, AZ
Approximately 3.6 million people in the United States do not obtain medical care due to transportation issues. This can result in delayed or missed care — affecting patients and healthcare providers alike.
Missed medical appointments can have a serious effect on your health whether immediate or in the long run. Continuity of care, regular monitoring of medications, preventive services, and screenings can all be affected once you miss these visits.
The struggle is especially true if you have a chronic illness, live with treatment side effects, or have a physical disability getting around.
