The patient is always responsible for transport charges and fees, as the recipient of a service. As an example, it doesn't matter who orders the food for a table at a dinner; each person in theory is responsible for their own meal.. In the event you did not want the service of EMS and declined tran…sport, I don't know of any companies who charge for response without transport. The charges are always, in my experience, from the transport and services rendered there.. If people were concerned that calling 9-1-1 for an unconscious person would get them sent a bill, no one would call 9-1-1 and a much higher number of people would die. Just be happy someone cared enough about you to call. (MORE)

Almost 6 years after accident collection service suddenly sends ambulance bill Ambulance company says they sent bill to wrong address originaly and just sat on it until now Do you pay?
I suppose, if you were treated by the ambulance service, they deserve to get paid. You could, however, contact the collection service and tell them that you do not feel that their actions are fair. It is quite possible that they will reduce, or even eliminate any exiting charges.

Jet-wise, LeerJets are the most popular among air ambulances. Although the LeerJet has long stopped production and was replaced by the BeechJet, Leer's have a larger passenger door allowing enough room for the onboard gurneys to be removed without taking the patient off the cot. Beech and newer airc…raft have all sacrificed that door opening to get enough room to allow more rooms for seating.. For propeller aircraft, the most popular for medevac crews and maintenance staff both are the KingAirs.. I don't know the specific model numbers off the top of my head - I work in the back of them, not the front. (MORE)
Best bet is to consult an attorney experienced in medical malpractice issues. There are even some attorneys who have experience in prehospital malpractice issues.. If EMTs were grossly negligent, failed to follow national/state patient care guidelines and/ treatment protocols they may be sued. It w…ill take expert EMS witness(es) for plaintiff to prevail over defense EMS expert(s). Most EMS textbooks outline what is expected under DOT/NHTSA EMT training curriculum for EMTs & Paramedics.. Some states have "Good Smaritan" type laws that protect EMTs from simple negligence suits & require gross negligence, malfeasance, failure to provide care, etc. in order to sue EMTs. (MORE)

Towns often have a budget set aside for Emergency Services, which include the local ambulance crew. However, this cost is often not paying for the town to use these services for free. Unlike the fire and police department, which are free services paid completely through your taxes, most town EMT …services charge for their services, going through your health insurance if they can. If it is an auto accident, then the EMT services will go through your motor vehicle insurance first. Some towns have a membership or subscription, or even a town fund, whereby people who either subscribe or cannot pay, are not pursued by credit bureaus for the cost of their ambulance trip. Many towns often have a hardship request, whereby you apply to let the town know how poor you are, and they decide if you are able to pay the cost of your transport. (MORE)
I would highly recommend the services of Vibha Lifesavers - of the HI Flying aviation group based in Mumbai for Medical escorts for Air Ambulance - they provide very professional doctors and nurses for domestic and international medical transfers.
Starting an ambulance service requires licensing, equipment and trained personnel. Many communities work on a multi year contract basis meaning it is not possible to open a new company there.
Perhaps the best parallel model to explain this would be airline carriers and their hubs and routes provided.. Part of the decision is economic, as you lose "market share" if your service area overlaps too much with a competitor. Having more ambulances per group would often simply add more cost to …their bottom line, as they might remain out-of-use half the time (as might underused paramedics).. Another factor is time. You don't want to send your ambulance to such a far point that the round-trip time of transport exceeds the expectations and safety requirements of the destination hospital. (MORE)
Yes. Paramedics can be sued for medical malpractice and are often targeted because they are likely to be working on people that may need instant life-saving interventions. Paramedics also have significantly less training than even nurses, making their potential for making very serious mistakes consi…derably higher. (MORE)
Ambulance services : are medical transportation services that are often called upon to move ailing individuals from one location to another. The most common relevance of this type of service is to respond to an emergency situation, such as an auto accident or the sudden collapse of an individual…, quickly moving the ill or injured party to a care facility where he or she can receive treatment. However, the typical ambulance service provides other services as well. from: MICHEAL POPOOLA (park lane) (MORE)
Rapid Transport Of Trained Medical Crew: There are a 2 types of ambulance crews; Emergency Medical Technician and Paramedic (both are also able to drive the ambulance as well as work in the back). When someone has a heart attack, for example, he or she will need IMMEDIATE medical help, such as a p…aramedic/EMT and a doctor (the ambulance crew may be the first help to arrive). The ambulance must be able to get quickly to the scene, which is why an ambulance uses lights and sirens). It must get there quickly because a heart attack is a life threatning condition and it is important to act quicky to ensure the victim survives.. Essential Medical Supplies: In addition to the first (above) aim, an ambulance also carries essential life-saving equipment/supplies (eg. Oxygen cylinders, AED's, etc). In this sense ambulance crews only aim is to use this equipment when need to ensure that a person can survive before arriving at hospital, but it is not the only aim (other aims of ambulance crews include: transporting people to nearest hospital, reassurance of patient/s and stabilising the patient).. The above examples deal with one individual ambulance and crew rather than the whole ambulance service, but at the same time the above aims can relate to the whole ambulance service industry as a whole. I gave examples individually to make it easier to understand.. Hope this helped:) (MORE)
Question your homeowners insurance. If it was the neighbor's pool, perhaps their liability/homeowners insurance will pick up the cost. In any case, you have to have the ambulance at any price.

Ambulances are commonly staffed in two person crews. The type of licensure these people have depend on the type of ambulance they are operating in. There are two different types of ambulances: Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). A BLS truck is staffed with at least one EMT-Bas…ic or sometimes, an EMT-Advanced. The other crew member is either another EMT-B, EMT-A, or an Medical First Responder (MFR). A BLS truck is equipped to deal with most emergencies but will not have all the capabilities of an ALS truck. ALS trucks are staffed with at least one EMT-Paramedic, and either an EMT-B, EMT-A, or another EMT-P. These trucks and crew are trained in advanced methods such as cardiology and pharmacology and are able to do things like EKGs, start IVs and administer drugs, and intubate. An ambulance will always have at least an EMT-Basic, and most ambulances are ALS, meaning they have at least one Paramedic at all times. (MORE)
