Ride Velo Health has been making waves for a while as a ride-sharing startup, and now it’s about to make more headlines with its unprecedented move to create a ride-hailing app for the healthcare industry. As announced by the founder, Louis Yson, “Velo Health will be a subsidiary of Ride Velo Health that focuses on helping patients get to their health appointments and return to their homes.”
Velo Health is set to revolutionize healthcare appointments by providing transportation to patients who cannot get to their doctor’s office by themselves. The focus is on non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) for patients who do not have emergency cases but need help with transport.
The company’s goal is to become an integral part of the healthcare process, and right now, it can bill Medicaid and Medicare directly. It is currently raising funds on WeFunder and from well-meaning investors and individuals who would like to support a new health startup. Velo Health is targeting medical doctors, doctors’ offices, patients, drivers, and angel investors.
With more than twenty years of experience in building successful businesses and startup companies, Louis Yson is about to shake things up in the ride-sharing industry and the medical sector. Louis Yson found a sweet spot between an ambulance service and a ride-sharing service to create Velo Health. The company will provide its services to non-emergency patients and help them access the transportation help they need.
Yson has built companies across the mortgage brokerage, medical billing, and medical provider practice management verticals. Velo Now is about to join the long list of revolutionary companies he has built. His motivation to build the company came from his mother’s experience during her dialysis. Most times, she was unable to get a safe, comfortable ride to the hospital, and it was always stressful. Louis vowed to do something about it, and that vow influenced the birth of Velo Health. The beauty of using Velo Health is that it can bill Medicare and Medicaid directly once it gets approved as a licensed Medicaid and Medicare transportation provider. What this would mean is no-cost transportation for patients so they can visit their doctors to get the quality medical care they need.
Louis’s goal for the company is to provide transportation in every state across the United States. He also hopes to penetrate the global market and become the pioneer of healthcare-focused ride-hailing services. “Velo Health is giving families and individuals the option of a fast, affordable, safe, and reliable transportation to their health appointments. We want them to be aware of this option so they can be assured that medical care is within reach whenever they need it at no extra cost to them as their insurance adequately covers it,” Louis says.
With Velo Health making this entry into the ride-hailing industry and the healthcare sector, the world has something to make it better and Louis Yson has never been prouder to be a part of an innovative venture.part of an innovative venture.
