Solution integrates fleet tracking and Medicaid billing

Posted on June 4, 2012

GLENVIEW, Ill. — Navman Wireless has partnered with TransitPro Logistics to provide a fully integrated fleet tracking and Medicaid billing solution for school transportation departments.

The partnership automates all aspects of the data gathering and billing process, including documentation of pupil pickup and drop-off.

The joint solution allows bus drivers to record pupil pickup and drop-off information in real time with a tap on a Navman Wireless terminal installed in the vehicle. That data is automatically transmitted to Navman Wireless’ OnlineAVL2 software and then processed through TransitPro’s solution, which completes all administrative processes associated with applying for Medicaid reimbursement, including confirmation of each pupil’s Medicaid and special-needs transportation eligibility.

“Combining our fleet tracking solution with TransitPro’s technology streamlines the entire Medicaid reimbursement filing process, from creating a verifiable record of each pupil’s transportation to and from school for each day to preparing the necessary documents,” said Renaat Ver Eecke, vice president and general manager at Navman Wireless North America.

Ver Eecke also said that the company expects the solution to help schools "significantly increase" their reimbursement rates.
