In 2006, city council passed an ordinance authorizing the director of public safety to establish a fee schedule for emergency transport services within our municipality. Additionally, the director is charged with establishing a mechanism to waive fees when a documented hardship exists.
This was done in part because existing funding sources didn’t adequately cover the associated costs of providing the service and lawmakers sought to reduce dependency upon general fund allocations. The model ensures more stable budgetary parameters.
Billing services are administered to by private and third-party entity. If you’ve used the service, an invoice is first submitted to any and all insurance providers. Afterwards, the remaining balance becomes the responsibility of the patient. An attached document ensures anyone can seek relief if a hardship exists.
