Does the Borough charge for ambulance service?
Yes. If you are transported in an ambulance there will be a fee. We try to collect most of the charges from any insurance that is available, but there is a bill. The charges depend on what the patient needs. Please do not hesitate to call 9-1-1 for an ambulance should you feel one is needed. Your health and life are important to us and any delay in calling for an ambulance can be critical. We will work with you on payments, if necessary, after we take care of your medical needs.
What happens if I call for an ambulance, or one is called for me, and I refuse transport?
Our ambulance crews are professionals, trained to know what should be done in an emergency. They will evaluate you. If they believe you should be transported, they will try to convince you as to why you should seek the opinion of a physician. If you still refuse, we will ask you to sign a form stating that you refused our care to relieve us from liability, should your condition later worsen. You will also be advised to call 9-1-1 or seek treatment should your condition worsen. There is no charge if you are not transported via ambulance.
I have questions about my ambulance bill. Can you help?
