NEMT & Credential Management – Here’s What You Need to Know



NEMT & Credential Management – Here’s What You Need to Know

In the NEMT realm, all drivers and vehicles have credentials associated with them, such as licenses, insurance, vehicle inspections etc. These records are critical to determine whether a driver or vehicle is qualified to perform a trip and for you to actually get reimbursed for it.

In this post, we’ll explain the importance of credential management and some valuable features of TripSpark's Credential Management software

 

Why Credential Management?

As an NEMT broker, you must make sure your fleet’s and drivers' credentials are up to date. Managing credentials accurately and regularly makes certain only qualified drivers and vehicles perform NEMT trips and ensures your company is in compliance with funders' contracts. For example, if one driver has an expired driver's license and bills for a trip, this would surface during the billing review resulting in an unbillable trip. Since billing may take place several days after the performance of the trip, the potential for loss of revenue expands until the issue is caught. You can see why you can’t afford to not manage credentials and why it’s imperative for brokers to ensure only approved drivers and vehicles make trips.

TripSpark's Credential Management software, part of TripSpark's NEMT software suite, enables providers and brokers to have control over driver and vehicle documentation.
