As of January 1, 2013, the EMS Law (Bill 17-12E | Bill 17-13 | County Resolution 17-664) authorized Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service to seek reimbursement for ambulance transports from private health insurance companies, Medicare, or Medicaid. The quality of patient care continues to be the highest priority for Montgomery County’s Fire & Rescue Service.
The revenue generated from this program will provide much needed equipment, enhancement and training for the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service, without additional cost and increased taxes on county residents.
If you are asked to provide additional insurance information about your ambulance transport, please call 1-866-631-3116. If you still have questions, please contact us at MCFRS.EMSBilling@montgomerycountymd.gov or call the Patient Advocate at 240-777-3636.
