(2) the nursing facility/member refuses to provide the documentation required to determine the medical necessity for NET services;
(3) the member or attendant exhibits uncooperative behavior or misuses/abuses NET services;
(4) the member is not ready to board NET transport at the scheduled time or within 10 minutes after the scheduled pick up time; and
(5) the nursing facility/member fails to request a reservation at least three days in advance of a health care appointment without good cause. Good cause is created by factors such as, but not limit to any of the following:
(A) urgent care;
(B) post-surgical and/or medical follow up care specified by a health care provider to occur in fewer than three days;
(C) imminent availability of an appointment with a specialist when the next available appointment would require a delay of two weeks or more; and
(D) the result of administrative or technical delay caused by SoonerRide and requiring that an appointment be rescheduled.
