NEMT COVID-19 Policies:
If you have COVID-19 or have been exposed and Require NEMT services, Veyo has launched a Specialized fleet of transportation that you can access through your healthcare provider:
Reach out to your treating facility and ask them to contact email@example.com to request NEMT specialized fleet services.
Requests must be submitted by licensed healthcare professionals (MD, PA, LCSW, MSW, LPN, RN, etc).
Our Specialized Fleet does not accommodate hospital discharges or same-day trip requests – please reach out directly to your local ambulance provider to access short notice transportation needs.
The list of steps to follow and policies can be found HERE.
If you’ve recently had COVID-19 or have been exposed please follow these steps to reinstate regular NEMT services:
Reach out to your treating facility and ask them to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request for your profile to be cleared and reinstated for regular NEMT services.
The request must be submitted by a licensed healthcare professional in order to be approved.
This fleet operates completely separate from our regular fleet.
The vehicles utilized have been professionally modified to provide complete separation between the passenger and driver sections.
Vehicles are sanitized between every ride, drivers are fully doffed on with PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and receive training to be equipped to transport members that are COVID-19 positive and PUI’s (Person-Under-Investigation).
