    Bill Summary

    Under this bill, a managed care organization or its contractor who provides non-emergency ambulance service to TennCare enrollees must permit enrollees or their representatives to make requests for particular ambulance service providers for their transportation needs. The contractor must accede to such requests when reasonable and advance scheduling concerns permit.

    This bill requires that in providing non-emergency ambulance service, a managed care organization must apply the same reimbursement policies within the same service area to all transportation requests that may be filled by any appropriately licensed and credentialed ambulance service provider, whether or not the provider is an in-network provider for the managed care organization; provided, that all ambulance service providers comply with the same terms and conditions.
