Cost Allocation Technology for Non-Emergency Medical Transportation Final Report

This is the Cost Allocation Technology for Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) phase 1 final report. With the passage of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, Congress challenged the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to lead the Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility (CCAM) to develop a cost allocation technology to account for divergent federal reporting requirements and maintain separation of funding sources by trip for NEMT. In February 2019, DOT, on behalf of the CCAM, issued a solicitation for a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) phase 1 project to develop a cost allocation proof of concept model for an open source software application. Phase 2 - the development of this allocated cost model for NEMT – will begin in early 2021.

The FAST Act required the CCAM to develop a cost sharing policy with an NEMT component to help guide the development of the cost allocation model. The Department of Health and Human Services, DOT, and Department of Veterans Affairs worked together to develop the CCAM Cost-Sharing Policy Statement, which provides key information on two types of cost-sharing arrangements: vehicle and ride sharing and Federal fund braiding.
