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.
