What are the billing rates for EMS services?

Madison County will charge a fee of $13.00 per mile for each ambulance transport and a fee of $425 to $775 for EMS services provided in connection with the transport, depending on the level of EMS care required by the patient. There are three levels of EMS care: (1) Basic Life Support (BLS); (2) Advanced Life Support-1 (ALS1); and (3) Advanced Life Support-2 (ALS2).  Madison County's fees are established by a resolution of the Board of Supervisors, consistent with rates allowed by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for our geographic region.
