Welcome to the Non-Emergency
Medical Transportation Industry, an industry that’s literally growing by the day. How do I know? Because the elderly population is literally in the process of doubling and the medical industry is experiencing huge change.
Further, I know because I started my first company, a NEMT business in 1999. Since then, I have help and untold number of transportation providers and entrepreneurs from all across the country to grow, build, expand and diversify their NEMT businesses.
So what is Non-Emergency
Medical Transportation (NEMT)?
Also known as an ambulette service, NEMT is the transportation of people in wheelchairs, stretchers or those ambulatory who need assistance.
Do NOT be confused: This is NOT an ambulance service! This is strictly non-emergency transportation. You do NOT need any kind of special life-saving skills, training or equipment!
With your NEMT service, you will transport people to and from medical appointments, in and out of hospitals, nursing facilities, or from residences to various medical appointments. And here’s the absolute best part… Your two niche markets, the medical industry and the elderly population, are not just growing, they’re exponentially booming!
The elderly population is the fastest growing niche market in the world – and it’s only getting bigger! By the year 2030, the US elderly population will have doubled, reaching in excess of 70 million!
The US health care industry is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing industries! By the year 2016, the growth of the US medical industry will have consumed almost 20% of our GDP! Now seriously, if you have any kind of keen business sense then these two statistics, the growth of the elderly population and that
of the medical industry, have got to excite you and gain your interest!
