You're right, there are no out-of-pocket costs for residents who live within our district. We do, however, charge your insurance company, Medicare or Medicaid for the cost of the ambulance ride. If you are a resident, you will receive a statement from our billing service. It's just a request for information to submit to the insurance company. It's not a bill you are expected to pay.
Individuals who live outside of the district are charged. This helps support our ambulance operation.
Occasionally, a private ambulance will respond to the call if all of our personnel are responding to multiple calls or a large-scale fire. They are a separate corporation that provides service to our area and will charge you for the ambulance ride.
Contact the department for questions regarding notices or invoices related to ambulance services.
