Unique Home Based Business Opportunity - Non Emergency Medical Transportation Service

By S. Faith Williams

Non emergency medical transportation is a unique home based business opportunity in that the start-up costs are low but the profit potential is very high.
I'll start at the beginning.
What does a non emergency medical transportation service provide?
Mostly wheelchair and stretcher transportation to the elderly and disabled.
This is a very necessary service. Some communities do not provide special needs transportation for people in wheelchairs. Even those that do, do not offer the kind of assistance and door-to-door service that non emergency medical transportation provides.
There are different degrees of disability. Many people in wheelchairs require individual attention and assistance from the driver that they cannot get from a public transportation service. They may not have someone who can ride with them to help them get into and back out of the van and to the exact location they are going to. An ambulette driver provides this level of service.
Then you have the people who cannot sit and must be transported on a stretcher. These people have to get to their medical appointments somehow. They either go by ambulette or ambulance which is many times more expensive. There is also the issue of people using emergency services in non emergency situations.


What is an ambulette?
Ambulettes are the vans used by non emergency transportation services to drive their special needs clients around. They are modified to be wheelchiar accessible. There are DOT regualtions governing theconfiguration of vans used for this purpose but ambulettes do not have to be new. You can start your non medical transportation service with a used one. That's what makes this unique home based business opportunity so affordable.
You can find a good used van for less than $10,000. You're the driver, so there aren't any labor costs. Later on, you can expand and buy additional vans and hire drivers.
The only other thing you need is a cell phone so people who need rides can call you.
The marketing costs for this unique home based business opportunity are low.
You'll want to have the name and phone number of your business painted on the side of your ambulette so that as you are driving around, you are also advertising.
You will also need business cards to hand out to clients and to leave at area hospitals and nursing facilities.
I found one of these businesses in just this way after my mother suffered a stoke. She was on a stretcher and I needed someone to take her from the hospital to one of the local nursing homes.


Here's the breakdown:
Mom was a medicare patient. Our local ambulance service was charging $660 per trip. Medicare paid 80% leaving us with $132 to pay out of pocket. The ambulette service charged $75 per trip which medicare did not cover (medicaid does cover this expense). We saved $57 every time we used the ambulette service. Plus, I didn't have to file any claim forms!
You can easily figure out how much money you can make doing this at $75 (or more, pricing would depend on location)per ride.
That's the value of this unique home based business opportunity.
In light of the fact that the population of the U.S. is getting older and (unfortunately)sicker. I see nothing but growth in this recession-proof industry.

An Informational Guide To Medicaid And How It Works

Author: Mark Etinger

Currently, Medicare and Medicaid are the two main medical programs offered by the government to give health benefits to senior citizens. Medicare is the main program that is offered to people who are 65 and older, and to people with certain disabilities who are younger than the age of 65. Medicaid can supplement this system for senior citizens or anyone else who is on a limited income. However, with so many different plans and parts, it can be hard to understand just how your Medicaid assistance works. Before understanding Medicaid, it is important to understand how Medicare itself works.

The program has two parts, which are known as Part A and Part B. You can have Part A without Part B and vice versa, so knowing if you are covered for both is important. Part A works to cover hospitalization insurance, and Part B is medical insurance. Understanding what each of these parts can cover can better help you understand your benefits. Part A is used to cover home health care such as care in a hospital or nursing home. The price for this part of Medicare is determined by the taxes that you pay over the course of your lifetime.

If you and your spouse have paid in enough money, there is no monthly fee associated with Part A. Otherwise, Part A will cost a premium for those who haven't paid in, just like regular health insurance. Part B is what helps pay for doctor's services and other preventative measures, such as flu shots and other immunizations. Part B will always cost a monthly premium, which has hovered around $100 for the past few years. While both Part A and Part B can be separate, choosing which coverage you need is important. If both Part A and Part B are chosen, there is a deductible just as with any other insurance service.

If this is found to be too much, another different and supplemental policy called Medigap can be purchased, which will help cover some of the other costs in Medicare coverage such as coinsurances and deductibles. Supplementing Medicare is Medicaid, which is a program to help low-income people obtain health insurance. Both the Federal and your state government has a hand in running Medicaid, and each states' rules are different depending on where you live. The basic rules for being eligible for Medicaid are taken from the recipient's income and assets to determine if they are eligible for community Medicaid.

If you are not sure if you are qualified to receive Medicaid, the best thing to do is obtain some Medicaid information from your state's office to determine the rules of eligibility. There are also private companies who can help you qualify for Medicaid. If you believe you or your loved one is eligible to receive Medicaid benefits in addition to their Medicare benefits, you'll need to fill out Medicaid applications to get your name into the system. Qualified caseworkers are available to assist you in the application process, so if you have any questions, you will be guided through the entire set up with ease.

Why Is Medical Transportation Becoming a Necessity?
Why Is Medical Transportation Becoming a Necessity?
By Md Ullah Sifat

Medical transportation is now becoming a necessity for society because of increased dependence of sick or injured individuals on this service. Lack of this type transportation is a serious is an obstacle to better health care and increased costs. The medical transportation industry faces challenges as the population is growing and funds are decreasing. Appropriate coordination with transportation service providers and medical care management is required to overcome the challenges.

An inability to keep up with the rising population will put individuals at transportation disadvantage. There will be more demand for transport services that are efficient in response to the individual needs.

The Rising Trend in Non Emergency Medical Transportation

Similarly significant financial implications are to be faced by medical care programs since inadequate funds will provide fewer chances for the transportation service to grow. Individuals will then be more dependent on the non emergency health transportation service which will put them at a cost risk.

This transportation is a sort of a taxi service for disabled or elderly people. The transportation is conformed to the safety standards and customized to add accommodations like the hydraulic lift. Although this is an innovation in the medical transportation business but it might be costlier for some individuals.

Medical transportation benefits those who need medical assistance while travelling. Where the industry is facing multiple challenges based on coordination, increasing the number of vehicles and upgrading them the well designed and well coordinated transportation systems can help control the health while traveling and save medical costs. The local business and medical programs are now putting forward partnerships for better provision of transportation facility.
