Why does the City have EMS Cost Recovery?
Colonial Heights is joining a growing number of area localities that are seeking recovery from insurance providers for the costs of emergency ambulance transportation. Most health insurance policies already provide this coverage, which is included in your monthly premiums.

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.
