What health care services can I get NEMT to take me to?

  • An appointment with a health care provider that takes MO HealthNet or MO HealthNet Managed Care.
  • An appointment for a service covered by MO HealthNet or MO HealthNet Managed Care.
  • An appointment with a health care provider near where you live. If the provider is far away, you may need to say why and get a note from your doctor. There are rules about how far you can travel to a health care appointment and get a ride from the NEMT program.

NEMT will not give you a ride to these services:

  • Pharmacy
  • Certain Durable Medical Equipment services
  • Some Comprehensive Substance Treatment Abuse and Rehabilitation (CSTAR) services
  • Developmental Disability (DD) Waiver Services
  • Some Community Psychiatric Rehabilitation (CPR) services
  • Adult day care services
  • Services provided in your home.

School districts must supply a ride to a child's individual education plan (IEP) services and IEP medical related services.
