Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 3935, Protecting Patients Transportation to Care Act [open pdf - 30KB]
This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as passed by the House of Representatives on September 21, 2020. From the Document: "H.R. 3935 would amend current Medicaid regulations to include nonemergency medical transportation (NEMT) in the list of mandatory Medicaid benefits. The act also would require states to have in place a process for managing NEMT services under Medicaid and require the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to issue updated guidance and establish a working group of stakeholders to obtain input for improving program integrity for NEMT services. Regulations currently require states to ensure that eligible, qualified Medicaid beneficiaries have access to NEMT to take them to and from providers. Finally, the act would require the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the Secretary of HHS to produce reports regarding NEMT services."
