BeST Transit: A Call To Action

A new law requires Pennsylvania’s Medical Assistance Transportation Program (MATP) to transition to something known as a “full-risk brokerage model.” If this happens, this means that most likely, private, out-of-state, for-profit companies will take over MATP programs in local communities – programs that are currently overseen by locally elected and appointed leaders with services provided by well-established, known PA community-based transportation providers. This law was passed swiftly and quietly last June. This would impact BeST services as we know it.
