National Interstate expands medical transportation program

Posted on April 16, 2012

National Interstate Insurance Co. expanded its Community & Medical Transportation (CMT) insurance program to include best-in-class fleet taxi operations. The product will be offered exclusively through National Interstate's network of qualified independent retail brokers.

Originally launched in 2003, the CMT program focuses on providing specialized insurance solutions to local community passenger transportation companies including paratransit, non-emergency medical transportation, as well as fixed-route and demand-response public transit providers. The CMT product is underwritten and serviced through National Interstate's Mechanicsburg, Pa. office by an in-house staff with nearly 50 years of collective CMT experience.

National Interstate is also an active member of the Taxicab, Limousine and Paratransit Association, and will be attending their Spring Conference being held in New Orleans on May 6 to 9, as well as exhibiting at the Annual Convention and Tradeshow in October.
