8.014 Non Emergent Medical Transportation
The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (Department) is required by Executive Order D 2012-002 (EO2), as codified at Section 24.4-4-103.3 CRS (2014), to review rules to ensure that they are effective, efficient, and essential. The EO2 order also requires that state agencies provide an appropriate opportunity for public input. The Department would like to involve stakeholders in the drafting process of Non Emergent Medical Transportation that may be re-written to incorporate their perspectives and ideas where possible. The actual re-write of the rules will be conducted at a later date. The Department will also accept public comment through July 31, 2016.
The Department shall assure transportation to and from medically necessary services covered by the Colorado Medical Assistance Program for clients who have no other means of transportation. Payment will be made for the least expensive means suitable to the client’s condition. The distance to be traveled, transportation and treatment facilities available and the physical condition and welfare of the client shall all determine the type of transportation service authorized.
