Katie Beckett Medicaid

Upcoming changes to the NEMT manager

In August of 2022, Veyo, the current manager for non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) in Wisconsin, was purchased by Medical Transportation Management (MTM), Inc. 

Beginning February 1, 2024, Veyo will start their transition to MTM in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin NEMT program will begin using MTM Link, the MTM ride scheduling and mileage reimbursement system, on February 1, 2024. There will not be changes to NEMT covered services.

For more information about the transition, visit the Medicaid NEMT Manager webpage or the Veyo Wisconsin website

Katie Beckett Medicaid serves children under 19 who live at home and have certain health care needs. The name comes from a child, Katie Beckett, whose family advocated that the best treatments and services for her needs were available at home and in a community setting. The federal government created a special group of Medicaid coverage for kids just like Katie Beckett.
