The Cost of EMS Shouldn't Be a Bitter Pill to Swallow
A Pafford EMS Membership Helps Mitigate Out-of-Pocket Expenses for Patients.
Here's how a Pafford Air and Ground Membership Works
Because most health insurance providers do not cover the entire cost of ambulance services; and, because sometimes, ambulance reimbursement claims are denied by a patient's insurance company leaving the patient with the full responsibility of paying for the ambulance, Pafford EMS offers families in its service areas with children under the age of 26 the opportunity to purchase an annual membership to help mitigate out-of-pocket ambulance expenses.
When you purchase a Pafford membership to buy down the cost of your family's medically necessary ambulance transports to hospitals or skilled nursing facilities, Pafford EMS will accept your company's insurance reimbursement and will only charge you 50% of any remaining out-of-pocket balances for ambulance transport. In those areas where Pafford EMS also provides emergency medical helicopter/fixed wing air ambulance services, the terms of your membership will also apply.
If you don't decide to purchase a membership, Pafford EMS will still take very good care of you. However, you will be responsible for the full cost of the ambulance bill including the balances that remain after your insurance has paid your applicable coverage.
