Insurance is another place you would spend substantial capital for your non emergency medical transportation business. You need to obtain insurance for your ambulette vehicle operators, as well as for your business. California regulations mandate that ambulette operators must possess both comprehensive general liability and comprehensive auto liability with a combined single limit of $1,000,000 per incident. Insurance deductibles must be at most $5,000; greater deductibles may be allowable if the county’s risk manager grants permission.
What licenses are needed for a NEMT Business?
Licenses are another form of expenses you need to keep in mind while starting your non emergency medical transportation business. Depending on your location, getting a license might not be so prohibitive. To start, you need to submit your application for a non-emergency transport business license to your county’s emergency medical services agency.
This application must include all applicable profit-and-loss statements, a detailed description of the geographical area within which the ambulette service will do business, a schedule of rates charged, insurance and liability coverage as well as a description of business facilities and vehicles.
