Insurance companies/citizens will be charged according to the type of service received and the distance of transport to the hospital. Charges will be billed to the patient’s health insurance provider, Medicare or Medicaid. Patients without health-care coverage will be billed directly. If an ambulance responds, but the patient is not transported, there will be no charge.
Citizens who disclose financial hardships will be billed accordingly, using an “ability-to-pay” scale.
All citizens will be encouraged to subscribe to Fare Care, a yearly subscription plan designed to help pay emergency medical transport expenses not covered by their health care provider, Medicaid or Medicare.
Fare Care subscribers will not receive a bill for emergency ambulance transportation. Their expenses are covered under their yearly subscription fee. Patients who do not subscribe to Fare Care will be responsible for any amounts due.
