Q: Can I reach Amerimed EMS by calling 911?
A: Amerimed Medical Solutions does work with several municipal systems in Georgia to supplement the 911 Emergency Medical Services system, so in some cases, an Amerimed EMS ambulance may respond to your call to 911. Anytime you experience a medical emergency it is best to call 911 to get the closest available ambulance serving the area where you are located.
Q: What is the difference between an Amerimed EMS ambulance and crew from the ambulance that came when I called 911?
A: Nothing. Every ambulance is required to have the same equipment in order to be licensed in the State of Georgia. Additionally, all Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians are required to complete the same training curriculum to work on an ambulance. The only difference is the manner in which we are activated to respond to requests and slight variances in the focus of our services.
Q: Will I receive a bill for having an Amerimed EMS ambulance transport me or my family member?
A: Yes; however, the cost of the transport may be covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance if you have ambulance coverage under such programs. We typically bill these programs for our patients given that the reason for ambulance transport was medically necessary. Many services are covered by medical insurance programs. We make every attempt to determine if an ambulance is the most appropriate means of transportation for our patients.
Q: What payment options are available for me or my family member?
A: We will file all insurance as provided to us by the patient, parent, gaurdian or health care facility. Once insurance has settled, we will invoice the responsible party for the balance due. If no insurance information is provided, we will invoice the responsible party directly. We accept cash, checks, all major credit cards and PayPal. To pay your bill online click Pay My Bill.
