What is EMS billing?
EMS billing is a service fee charged by Hillsborough EMS for ambulance transportation to a local hospital.
Why does Hillsborough EMS charge for services?
Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance policies include coverage for medically necessary ambulance transportation. Insurance reimbursement helps to offset some of the operational costs of providing EMS coverage--costs that would otherwise have to be covered by donations or tax dollars.
What happens if I don't have insurance or if my insurance doesn't pay the entire bill?
