NEMT Insurance typically refers to minimum requirements for commercial auto insurance to first meet state minimums and or any federal filing requirements for transporting passengers and then to meet the real world requirements of NEMT brokers who typically require much more than state minimum liability coverage to work for them.
Tennessee and Georgia For-Hire Versus Private Carriers or transporters of people.
Any time a passenger carrier receives compensation for transporting passengers, it is considered for-hire. Unless subject to an exemption, all for-hire passenger carriers in interstate commerce must:
•Obtain FMCSA operating authority registration (no matter how small or light the vehicles used);
•Obtain and file minimum levels of financial responsibility (insurance): $1.5 million for operating vehicles of 15 or fewer passengers including the driver; $5 million for operating vehicles of 16 or more passengers including the driver; and
•Designate a process agent, a representative that can be served with court papers in any legal proceeding brought against a motor carrier.
If your NEMT operation has a DOT or MC # your requirement minimum will be based upon federal requirements.
Tips for For-Hire Status
•A not-for-profit organization can be a for-hire passenger carrier if the organization receives compensation.
•For-hire does not require the transportation to be available to the public.
•If a trip includes both private passengers and passengers providing compensation, it is a for-hire trip.
