Colorado Medicaid Transportation

Non-Emergent Medical Transportation (NEMT) is transportation to and from covered non-emergency medical appointments or services, NEMT is only available when a Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) member has no other means of transportation.

  • For a client to be eligible for NEMT Services they must:
    • Be a current Colorado Medicaid client
    • Be determined to not have access to other means of transportation including free transportation
    • Require transportation to obtain a non-emergency Colorado Medicaid covered service.
    • Not be within the following eligibility groups:
      • Qualified Medicaid Beneficiary (QMB)
      • Special Low-Income Medicare Beneficiary (SLMB)
      • Medicare Qualifying Individual-1 (QI-1)
      • Old Age Pension- State Only (OAP-state only)

Note: CHP+ is not a Medicaid program and, therefore, is not an eligibility group.
