    Everyday, thousands of patients and their families are faced with the challenge of arranging non emergency medical transportation for their loved ones. The federal and state government recognizes the importance of meeting the transportation needs of medically frail patients who do not require emergency medical transportation. The United States Congress enacted Section 6083 of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 to allow the introduction of Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (“NEMT”) brokerage systems for Medicaid recipients at the state level.

    Non-emergency medical transportation involves getting a patient to and from the source of
    medical care when the medical condition is not life threatening. This includes non-emergency
    ambulance, medi-car, taxicab, service car, livery or private automobile. The Non-Emergency Medical Transport (NEMT) business service is a growing Industry as the need for this specialized service continues to grow. Many existing companies and new businesses are venturing into the NEMT business as an additional source of revenue or as a stand alone profitable business.

    Mumbai is the capital of Maharashtra, an Indian state. It is the most populous city in India and it is home to Bollywood. Mumbai is located on the west coast and it is the combination of seven islands.

    There are various Public Transportation available in Mumbai. Some of them are:
    Local trains
    Auto Rickshaws

    The local trains in Mumbai are divided into three zones – Western line, Central / Main line and the Harbour line. The western line originates from Churchgate and goes upto Virar. The central line originates at Chatrapathi Shivaji Terminus (also known as VT / CST station) and goes upto either Karjat or Kasara. The harbour line also originates at CST, and takes a detour at Wadala and goes upto Andheri on the Western line.

    The rakes of the Mumbai suburban network have a maximum speed of 85 km per hour, but the drivers are given strict instructions to follow speed limits while entering or exiting a railway station. There have been lot of accidents of people trying to cross the railway tracks and now keeping this in mind, the Government is coming up with various programs to educate the people about the risk of crossing Railway tracks.

    Out of all the public transport systems available in Mumbai, the local trains are used by the most people. The local trains carry around 7 million commuters on a daily basis. Earlier, all the local trains had 9 coaches, but due to the increase in usage, some of them were made into 12 coach trains. Now most of the local trains are 12 coaches leaving some, and there is demand for 15 coach trains, but that is a hurdle since all railway platforms cant accomodate 15 coach trains, so the main stations are

  • Train For A 5k Race – Run And Win!

    If you want to test your physical shape or if you want to start doing some kind of exercise activity in order to stay fit but you are bored of gyms, then running a 5k race is the best idea for you. Running is easy; it can be done everywhere and is a very cost effective solution. Of course you cannot jump from your couch and start running 5k, no matter how easy it can prove if you follow a plan and program.

    People do not find the 5k race intimidating that is why most of the amateur runners prefer this distance. There are also many events that involve a simple 5k race – such as St Patrick’s Day, 4th of July race and so on. If you are looking for some kind of running exercise to keep fit, or if you have to start running because your health issues demand so, then choose the 5k and start training for it, before you are able to run the whole thing at once.

    Keep in mind that 5k races, even if they are run for fun without competing, are a very serious physical activity, and can prove really hard if you don’t follow the right way. There is definitely not a fixed recipe for all, as we are all different in terms of physiology and fitness. There are though many comprehensive guides out there, who can teach you how and when to run, based on your personal needs.

    A trainer can also do the same and is a very good solution for those who want to start running in professional races. If you just want to do it for fun or fitness, then a training guide should be enough.

    Follow the instructions of the guide as much as you can,
