Effective July 27, Hampden Township approved an EMS ‘Non-Transport Medical Assist Fee’ of $200.00 per response for any calls which do not include transport of the patient to a medical facility regardless if medical care is rendered. This is necessitated due to the activation of the EMS crews which incurs significant cost even before services are rendered. In addition, providing non-transport medical assists makes our EMS crews unable to respond to urgent medical emergencies, thereby creating a public safety concern for the community as a whole.
Examples of ‘Non-Transport Medical Assist’ services include, but are not limited to: lift assists, patient refusals, wellness checks, and all other non-transport EMS services. The ‘Non-Transport Medical Assist Fee’ will be invoiced to the patient’s insurance company. However, if not covered by insurance or subject to deductible, it will be the patient’s responsibility to pay the amount, in full. Individuals who subscribe to Hampden Township EMS will not receive a waiver of this fee and will be personally responsible for payment of the full fee if not covered by insurance.
