What is Emergency Medical Services (EMS) transport cost recovery?
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) transport cost recovery, sometimes referred to as an EMS transport fee, is the process of obtaining financial reimbursement for the cost of providing medically necessary ambulance transportation. Medicare, Medicaid, and the majority of private insurance policies allow for reimbursement for this service. The EMS transport cost recovery program is designed using compassionate billing practices to ensure that no one suffers financial hardship as a result of the program. There will be no charge for emergency medical care treatment if the patient is not transported.
