The public is invited to two meetings next week about new non-emergency medical transportation that will be offered to Medical Assistance recipients in St. Louis County next year.
The county’s Public Health and Human Services Department announced in a news release that in 2019 it will contract with Medical Transportation Management to provide the service, which is available to the county’s 42,000 Medical Assistance recipients. Medical Assistance is Minnesota’s version of Medicaid.
Through this year, the county financial services staff has coordinated the ride service. The switch is expected to provide improved service and free up county staff for other work, according to the news release.
County staff coordinated 13,000 trips for medical care in 2017, it said.
The meetings: 

  • 5:30-8:30 p.m. Monday, Northland Office Building, third floor, Liz Prebich Room, 307 First St. S., Virginia
  • 5-8 p.m. Tuesday, Government Service Center, second floor, Lake Superior Room, 320 W. Second St., Duluth
