The coronavirus pandemic has enforced regulatory departments to outline stringent safety guidelines for all medical first responders including emergency medical services, who are anticipated to come into contact with individuals who display confirmed or suspected symptoms of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. These guidelines were recently updated in July 2020. The rapid spread of infection has accelerated the need for Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT), which is being largely catered to by Transportation Network Companies (TNC) including Uber and Lyft in the country. This rideshare mobility option is primarily focused on providing transportation access to individuals for essential but non-emergency medical care including prenatal care visits, chemotherapy and kidney dialysis amongst others. The healthcare providers are capitalizing on this aspect to enhance patient’s access to care and expand their consumer group. For instance, American Logistics, a middle-aid in providing NEMT services, collaborated with Urban Health in August 2020 to increase transportation accessibility for patients with varied health and equipment need. Lyft, on the other hand, has been catering to the healthcare transportation sector since 2016. However, amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, the company in collaboration with Medicaid agencies introduced NEMT programs across Indiana, South Carolina and Florida, which it has now expanded to 10 States in the country. Some of the recent partnerships of the company include Henry Ford Health System, AMITA Health and CommonSpirit Health amongst others.
