Though we rely heavily on donations from the community to help us deliver the highest quality care, our daily operations are funded through billing for ambulance services. Unfortunately, due to insurance regulations, as well as other circumstances, ambulance services only receive a small fraction of what is actually billed. 911 ambulance services, unlike most other industries are required to provide emergency response without regard to the patient’s ability to pay. Trappe Fire Company Ambulance does NOT get fiscal support through tax subsidies and is dependent on income from ambulance billing to sustain its operations.
If you have been a patient of Trappe Fire Company Ambulance, you may receive a bill for those services. Your insurance may not cover the full amount, however there are multiple options to offset those costs. The ambulance membership program was designed to help alleviate and in some cases eliminate the copayment costs not covered by insurance payments. Additionally, if you do not have insurance, there are payment plans available and if you’ve already qualified for Medicaid, you may be eligible for the Trappe Fire Company Uncompensated Care Program.
