OUR AMAZING JOURNEY
The origins of Verida begins with our CEO, Steve Adams, who began his career in 1974 as an Emergency Medical Technician with the local ambulance company in his hometown of Carrollton, Georgia. Just two years later, Steve purchased the company and formed West Georgia Ambulance Service, Inc., which expanded over the next 20 years becoming one of the southeast’s largest minority-owned ambulance services.
In 1989 Steve Adams founded Adams Transport, Inc, a transportation company providing non-emergency medical transportation and other contracted transportation services.
Under contract with the Georgia Department of Human Resources, Adams Transport coordinated transportation logistics for several high-profile events including the Annual BellSouth Golf Classic in Atlanta, Bruno’s BellSouth Golf Classic in Nashville, and the World Football League.
In 2000, Steve founded Verida, Inc. as a transportation management company specializing in broker management of Medicaid non-emergency transportation (NET) services. In 2000, the Georgia Department of Community Health awarded Verida the contract to manage the Atlanta Medicaid NET Region. The company quickly became recognized as a leader in the Atlanta area due to its ability to provide reliable, high-quality transportation services.
Verida has grown to over 900 employees across the United States and continues to pursue relationships that foster true health care, advanced technology, big-data capabilities and comprehensive reporting. Through 2020, Verida has been awarded multiple contracts with State Medicaid Divisions and Managed Care Organizations in Virginia, Georgia, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Indiana, Mississippi and the District of Columbia. There’s more to come from Verida as we strive to make history everyday thanks to our member-focused service delivery model and our state-of-the art technology.
