What else do I need to know about the NEMT program?

Call the NEMT program to cancel the ride if you cannot go to your appointment or need to change the date.

The NEMT program will give you a ride that meets your needs. You do not get to choose what kind of car or van or the company that will give you the ride.

Missouri law requires the following:

  • Children less than 4 years old or less than 40 pounds must be in an appropriate child safety seat.
  • Children ages 4 through 7 who weigh at least 40 pounds must be in an appropriate child safety seat or booster seat unless they are 80 pounds or 4'9" tall.
  • Children 8 and over or weighing at least 80 pounds or at least 4'9" tall are required to be secured by a safety belt or buckled into an appropriate booster seat.

If you do not have an appropriate child safety seat or booster seat you must provide this information when you make your reservation and the appropriate child safety seat or booster seat will be provided at the time of transport.
