You must be on MO HealthNet or MO HealthNet Managed Care on the day of your appointment. People in a MO HealthNet Managed Care Health Plan get their NEMT services from the health plan. Some people on MO HealthNet or MO HealthNet Managed Care do not get NEMT services as part of their benefits. The NEMT program will let you know if your benefits do not cover NEMT.
If you need to be away from home overnight, the NEMT program may be able to help with meals and lodging. If a child under the age of 21 needs someone to go along, NEMT will only pay for the child and one parent or guardian. NEMT will only pay for other children or adults to ride along for specific circumstances on a case by case basis. Participants under the age of 17, must have a parent or guardian travel with them.
