Ambulance Transport Insurance Billing

"Where Patient Care is our Highest Priority"

"What You Need to Know" 

Frederick County Fire and Rescue Services began billing patient’s medical insurance for ambulance transport services in January 2013, in an effort to offset the rising cost of providing emergency medical services.  Reimbursement of these funds assists with operational expenses we incur in providing a combination volunteer and paid EMS System, while offering some relief to the taxpayers of the County.  Providing the "Highest Quality" of professional patient care and treatment will continue to be our first priority in meeting the medical needs of the citizens and visitors of Frederick County.

"What are the charges for ambulance transport services?"
