Non Emergency Medical Transportation Accreditation Commission (NEMTAC) Gains Coveted Designation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – July 16th, 2018 – The Non Emergency Medical Transportation Accreditation Commission (NEMTAC) today announced that it has been approved by the Executive Standards Council (ExSC) of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as an Accredited Standard Developer (ASD).

Founded in 1918, ANSI is a private, non-profit organization that coordinates, facilitates, and promotes the development of voluntary consensus standards that are relied upon by industry, government agencies, and consumers across the United States and around the world. ANSI accredited organizations – and the experts that populate them – work cooperatively to enhance service delivery and improve the competitiveness of businesses operating in the global marketplace.

“With active participation from subject-matter-experts on a variety of topics related to non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT), NEMTAC is developing a rigorous standards development process for the NEMT industry that includes review and approval by various Advisory Boards and our Board of Directors,” said Steve Lewis, NEMTAC Board President.

Approval to become a standards developer was granted based upon standards development procedures that meet or exceed ANSI’s due process requirements and that NEMTAC will ensure adequate resources are dedicated to NEMT standards development.

“NEMTAC is proud to join the ranks of ANSI Standards Developers,” said Melissa Jankowski, NEMTAC Executive Director, “With ANSI approval, the public can depend on NEMTAC Standards as a peer driven, independent, and effective means of identifying the NEMT industry’s best practices for quality, safety and ethical business practices.”
