Ground Emergency Medical Transportation (GEMT) is a program where publicly owned or operated ambulance services can get extra payments. These payments help cover the gap between what it actually costs to transport patients in emergencies and what they receive from Medicaid, mileage and other reimbursements. It's a way to support ambulance providers in delivering essential services.

Providers get extra payments based on their costs for transporting Medicaid members in emergency ground ambulances. This applies specifically to Medicaid Fee-for-Service and Medicaid managed care members under Title XIX of the federal Social Security Act and the Affordable Care Act.
