LogistiCare, a Subsidiary of Providence Service Corp., Opens Phoenix Call Center to Support Expanding Commercial Client Base

ATLANTA and PHOENIX, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LogistiCare Solutions LLC, the nation's largest non-emergency medical transportation management company and a wholly owned subsidiary of Providence Service Corp (Nasdaq: PRSC), has opened its first call center in the Southwest. Located in Phoenix, Arizona, the call center is designed to handle transportation requests from LogistiCare's nationwide health maintenance organizations (HMO) and other commercial clients.

"While we have call centers throughout the country to support our Medicaid contracts, Phoenix is the first center to begin taking calls exclusively for our commercial clients," said LogistiCare's CEO John L. Shermyen. "The call center will accommodate requests from our expanding commercial client base of HMOs and managed care organizations (MCOs). Additionally, we will be well-situated to service clients and capture growth in one of the nation's fastest growing regions."

LogistiCare currently arranges non-emergency medical transportation for clients in 36 states. In addition to experiencing significant growth among government contracts, LogistiCare has also enjoyed substantial growth in its commercial accounts in recent years. Increasingly, health care plans are now offering non-emergency transportation as a plan benefit.

The Phoenix call center opened in November 2007 with 50 customer service representatives and employment is expected to double over the next 18 months. Transportation will be provided by contractors in LogistiCare's transportation network, which includes over 1,100 transportation providers throughout the United States.
