If you’re a non-emergency medical transportation provider, you know that broker relationships are an important part of running a successful business. Every company starts somewhere, so whether you’re working with local brokers or national ones, each is a crucial piece of the NEMT puzzle. ModivCare, formerly LogistiCare, is the nation’s largest manager of NEMT programs for state government agencies and managed care organizations. If you’ve been in the industry for a while, you’re likely very familiar with ModivCare and might even get trips through them. If you’re new to the NEMT world, you might not have experience with ModivCare yet. In either case, they are an important broker to form a partnership with, yielding lots of opportunity for providers across the country. 

ModivCare history

ModivCare came to fruition in 1986, beginning as a logistics and data technology company. Understanding how they began as a small tech company and became the biggest broker in the United States is important in your step to forming a relationship with the broker, but it’s also a great success story for anyone who thinks they can’t make a difference in the world.
