Will I be billed for amounts not covered by insurance?

A County resident will be billed only to the extent of his or her Medicare, Medicaid or other health insurance coverage. Any remaining cost-sharing amounts (e.g., co-payments, deductibles) will be waived for County residents. If you are a County resident who is not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or any other health insurance coverage, charges for EMS services will be waived.  If you are a non-resident, then your insurance company will be billed and you will subsequently receive a bill for applicable cost-sharing amounts remaining after insurance claims have been processed. Any non-resident who is without any form of insurance coverage will be billed for the entire amount of the EMS services delivered. If a patient who receives a bill is unable to pay, then the patient may apply for a financial hardship waiver.
