Interpretation Service


Professional interpretation services are offered by NEMS to members at no cost. Telephone interpreters are available in over 100 languages for immediate needs. NEMS discourages the use of friends, family members, or minors as interpreters.

Interpretation services may be requested by completing the request form below or by calling NEMS Provider Relations at 415-352-5186 during regular business hours. Interpretation services can be provided for appointments that occur during our regular business hours, Monday to Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm, excluding holidays.

Requests for routine appointments and in-person interpreters, including sign language interpreters, should be submitted at least 5 business days prior to the appointment during regular business hours. Please note that in-person interpretation is available in limited capacity. For urgent appointments, please reach out to us as soon as possible to schedule interpretation services.
