The Providence Service Corporation, an American social services corporation, has reportedly announced that its subsidiary, LogistiCare Solutions LLC has extended its partnership with Lyft in a multi-year commitment.

Sources cite that this partnership will enhance access to care for the millions of people in the United States who rely on LogistiCare for convenient and reliable transportation to fulfill their medical needs. Since 2017, the joint effort has facilitated access to millions of riders across 48 states and the District of Columbia.

Dan Greenleaf, CEO of The Providence Service Corporation, said that Lyft has been an excellent partner which helped LogistiCare to achieve success. This partnership would help Americans to get their medical care dependably. The company is pleased to extend the collaboration with Lyft and appreciate the professionalism of drivers of the Lyft platform.

For the record, in 2017, Lyft and LogistiCare announced a nationwide collaboration. LogistiCare is Lyft’s biggest NEMT ( non-emergency medical transportation) partner, and the deal represents the nation’s most significant partnership between a rideshare company and a NEMT manager.

According to reports, the partnership enables users to request scheduled and on-demand Lyft rides through LogistiCare in real-time. By collaborating with Lyft to enhance network capacity, LogistiCare ensures market-leading NEMT services for members of Medicaid, commercial, and Medicare plans.

Speaking on the partnership, Megan Callahan, VP of Healthcare at Lyft, said that their firm is realizing the impact of transportation on overall health and is extremely proud to extend its partnership with LogistiCare.

In 2016, Lyft stated delivering services to the healthcare sector after releasing an unmet and acute need for on-demand NEMT services. Today, the company works with several healthcare organizations across 50 states including the top ten health plans and nine out of the top 10 health systems.
