What about non-emergency service?
EMSPlus covers medically necessary nonemergency stretcher ambulance transportation to and from hospitals within a 40-mile radius of your home. Patients must be confined to bed with no other appropriate transportation to medical care. Visits to physicians, dentists, physical therapy centers and pharmacies are not covered. Dialysis patients must have prior approval.
What is considered medically necessary?
Medically necessary ground ambulance service is the specific need for emergency care or stretcher ambulance transportation to and from a hospital where other forms of transportation would be medically inappropriate given the patient’s condition.
Won't insurance pay ambulance bills?
Some insurance plans do not cover the full cost of ambulance and paramedic services. Non-members are responsible for all costs not covered by insurance. EMSPlus members never have to pay out-of-pocket costs for ambulance service that falls within program guidelines. If you don't have health insurance or your health insurance doesn't fully cover ambulance service, EMSPlus is for you.
If I am an EMSPlus member, why do you bill my insurance company?
EMSPlus is not an insurance program. EMSPlus membership fees do not cover the actual cost of service. Acceptance of insurance reimbursement allows us to keep the cost of membership affordable for everyone and provides us with essential funds to maintain and improve services. For medically necessary transports, we bill your insurance and then cover what insurance doesn't.
