CID is looking for feedback regarding Veyo

The Consortium for Idahoans with Disabilities is collecting information regarding issues that people with disabilities (and/or parents of children with disabilities) may be experiencing with non-emergency medical transportation being provided by the new managed care organization Veyo.

CID is sharing these concerns with the Department of Health and Welfare, legislators, and Veyo in an effort to determine what problems may exist and how to provide immediate solutions.
