In Wisconsin, non-emergency transportation falls woefully short

An audit of a Wisconsin transportation company that received $56 million from the state for non-emergency transportation to bring Medicaid beneficieries to appointments reveals the company often arrived late or not at all, according to the Associated Press. Medical Transportation Management (MTM) was contracted by Wisconsin to transport Medicaid patients to doctor's appointments. The audit shows that, out of 2.3 million trips over the course of a year, the company was late more than 55,000 times and didn't show on more than 4,000 occasions. A survey showed that 40 percent of recipients missed or had to reschedule appointments, leading some legislators to argue the program needs an overhaul. Article
