Mileage Reimbursement

Thank you for your interest in participating in First Transit – Colorado NEMT’s Mileage Reimbursement Program.

Description: First Transit provides mileage reimbursement to Medicaid clients and other eligible individuals providing transportation for Medicaid funded medical appointments. Mileage is reimbursed at the State mandated level of 37¢ per mile based on the distance generated by our mapping software. Distance is always the most direct from home to your medical provider.

Registration: If you are a current Medicaid client, your information is already in our system. If you are a family member, friend, or volunteer providing the transportation, please complete the section on the Mileage Reimbursement Verification Form that enables First Transit – Colorado NEMT to generate a reimbursement check.

Reimbursement: Once you are registered with First Transit – Colorado NEMT for the Mileage Reimbursement Program, you need to schedule your trips with our Customer Service Representatives by calling 855-264-6368, print a Mileage Reimbursement Verification Form, complete the top section with the Medicaid Client being transported, have a representative at the medical provider’s office complete and sign the second section, then fill out the Transportation Provider Information section and return the form to First Transit. Reimbursement is made for direct travel distances as calculated by our scheduling software from the customer’s home address to the medical facility.

Please note that you can download the form here or we can mail or fax copies to you upon request. Simply call us at 855.OPS.NEMT (855.677.6368).
