Improve Service with ALC
Members of healthcare organizations using ALC's NEMT solution enjoy a 97% on-time rate, and participating organizations receive an average of 0.29 complaints per 1,000 trips - ultimately leading to more satisfied and healthier members; all while reducing the cost of administering your transportation benefit.
Happier, Healthier Members
When high-quality, reliable transportation is provided by a healthcare organization, the overall cost of healthcare can be reduced because members are able to better access the healthcare services that keep them well, including regular visits to their physician for check-ups, vaccines and other preventive care. It's a win-win solution for healthcare organizations and their members.
"…a strong case can be made that improved access to NEMT for transportation-disadvantaged persons is cost-effective in terms of better healthcare. In some cases, this cost-effectiveness translates directly into decreases in healthcare costs that exceed the added transportation costs."

Member Eligibility Verification
ALC's reservations specialists confirm member eligibility and monitor the number of trips taken by the member to ensure program benefits are not exceeded. With more than 100 agents available at any given time, as well as online reservation capabilities, ALC not only improves the quality of service, but also makes it easier for your members to utilize their transportation benefits.
Member Encounter Analytics
ALC can help healthcare agencies better manage and budget their transportation benefit by providing real-time updates on the number of trips provided month-to-date. These reports can be provided on a daily, weekly or even monthly basis depending on the healthcare organizations specific needs. ALC can also work with the healthcare agency to determine a schedule of services that meet budgetary requirements and trip quotas, while providing a high-level of customer service.
Preferred Transportation Provider Network
ALC's turnkey model offers the flexibility to transport any qualifying member requiring nonemergency medical transportation, whether they require ambulatory, wheelchair, or gurney service. ALC accomplishes this by "right sizing the vehicle." Partnering with certified local for-hire transportation service providers, ALC ensures that the appropriate vehicle is available to meet the needs of the organization and its members, whether it is a sedan, wheelchair accessible van, litter van or ambulance.
We are not a broker. The difference is that when incorporating non-dedicated vehicles, we maintain direct relationships with local, for-hire transportation service providers and offer real-time dispatch to meet the immediate needs of your customers.
