Meet the broker: MTM
mins read

Non-emergency medical transportation brokers are one of the main reasons it’s possible for NEMT companies of any size to easily find and book trips. For those who aren’t familiar, transportation brokers are essentially the liaison between passenger and provider. They receive trip requests through Medicaid and then assign those trips to providers in the appropriate area. This process makes it possible for Medicaid beneficiaries who can’t drive themselves to get rides to important healthcare appointments. One broker you’ll want to be familiar with if you’re looking for new contracts is MTM—one of the nation’s most experienced and qualified NEMT brokers. 

RouteGenie welcomes MTM to its family of broker integrations

At RouteGenie, we pride ourselves on finding simple solutions that allow NEMT providers to run their businesses more efficiently. Since many providers receive the majority of their trips from transportation brokers, NEMT broker integrations are necessary in achieving a seamless trip scheduling process between providers and brokers. We’re excited to announce our latest broker integration with MTM through its MTM Link platform. All current and future RouteGenie customers who work with MTM have the ability to share real-time data with the MTM Link platform, including general trip information, GPS updates, and timestamps for pick-ups, drop-offs, and trip completions. 

MTM history

MTM was founded in 1995 to address an unmet need in the healthcare landscape: arranging transportation services to and from appointments. Its founders, Peg and Lynn Griswold, were determined to create a company that would guarantee more people had the ability to get to and from their healthcare appointments without a worry. MTM achieved that goal quickly. Today, MTM is responsible for scheduling more than 20 million trips for 12 million members nationwide. They currently operate in 31 states and the District of Columbia, with call centers across the United States. 

Landing a contract with MTM

One way you’re sure to stand out as a serious company is with non-emergency medical transportation software.

If you use a broker-integrated system like RouteGenie, you’re golden.
