MILEAGE................................................................................................................. $25.00 per mile

Patients who, because of multiple patient situations or whose condition did not require movement by stretcher, are transported sitting up in a regular seat in the medic unit will be charged at the appropriate rate stated below. If they are the only patient transported, they will be charged the full mileage charge. If other patients are being transported in the same medic unit, Sit-up patients will be charged mileage as a Multiple Patient as described below.

RESIDENT RATE....................................................................................................................... $800.00

The Aid Call rate may be used whenever patient treatment services are rendered, especially when an advanced life support intervention was administered, but the patient was not transported.

This charge may also be used for expired patients under the following conditions:

  1. Calls where death is not certain and assessment and/or care are necessary to determine death will be handled as an "aid call.” Cases of obvious death,

      i.e. rigor mortis, decapitation, etc., where NO evaluation or treatment is        performed, will be handled as "no patients."

  1. Use of the monitor/defibrillator, solely for the purpose of confirming death, rather than for active patient care, will not constitute a charge, however, if the monitor/defibrillator is used for resuscitation, appropriate charges will be made.

TREATMENT NO TRANSPORT RESIDENT..................................................................... $800.00

 


TREATMENT NO TRANSPORT NON RESIDENT*....................................................... $900.00

When a medic unit transports more than one patient from the same incident or from unrelated incidents, each patient is charged a full appropriate rate. This is in recognition that each patient receives the same care and transportation services as when only one patient is transported. However, an adjustment will be made for mileage charges. In instances where more than one patient is transported in the same medic unit, the normal mileage charge will be split among the number of patients transported, i.e. if two patients are transported, they will each be charged a full appropriate rate but will only be charged 50% of the normal mileage charge, three patients would be charge 33 1/3% of the normal mileage charge.

When a patient’s condition warrants that an extra emergency medical technician assist the medic unit crew during transport, a fee for the extra attendant will be charged.

Situations and conditions where an extra attendant charge is applicable include: an acute/critical patient, a disturbed/combative patient, or an extremely obese patient (300 pounds or more). In each case, diagnosis or documentation must indicate medical necessity.

EXTRA ATTENDANT.................................................................................................................... $75.00

If the waiting time is extraordinarily long and constitutes an unusual circumstance, waiting time may be charged. Unusual circumstances would occur when there are medical complications requiring additional time, effort or expense. The reason for the waiting time must be documented. Waiting time is billed in thirty-minute increments. The first thirty minutes are not billed; they are included in the base rate.

WAITING TIME........................................................................................ $90.00 per half-hour

All pre-arranged paid stand bys are billed at an hourly rate. There is no Transport Rate or Mileage charge to the person/organization requesting the stand by. If a patient is treated and transported from the stand by event, the patient will be billed normal rates. Stand by time is charged from the time personnel first arrive at the station to prepare for the stand by, until they have arrived back at the station and have completed all duties related to the standby. A standby crew consists of two crew members with a dedicated paramedic unit. In the event of an emergency, the standby may be canceled or the paramedic unit may be recalled from the standby event without notice.

STANDBY.................................................................................................... $180.00 per hour

(2-hour minimum charge)

Patients treated and/or transported from a standby event will be charged in accordance with normal rates for services provided.

On-Scene Coordinator........................................................................ $90.00 per hour

(50% of the Standby Rate)

If an event requires two or more medic units, an on-scene coordinator may be required.
