2017 Annual Subscription Program
It is once again the time of year for us to offer enrollment in the ambulance subscription program to the individuals, families and businesses in our primary response area. While you will still receive emergency ambulance service if you do not subscribe to this program, we strongly encourage all residents and businesses to participate in order to avoid costs above and beyond what typical insurance will cover. We only offer our subscription program to individuals, families and businesses in our primary response area. If you question whether or not you are in the Yoe Ambulance Service response area, please call us so we can verify your coverage location. We strive to make this program available to everyone in our response area, if you are aware of someone who did not receive this information, please have them contact us and we will have this information sent to them.
Why Should I Buy An Ambulance Subscription?
Peace of Mind in an Emergency:
Although many patients have medical insurance coverage of some type, most insurance plans cover only a portion of the fees associated with transportation to the hospital, or will pay for only those fees they consider to be “usual and customary.” Unfortunately, this amount is usually far below our cost to provide 24-hour a day emergency ambulance service to a population of 42,845 citizens. Any portion of the fees not covered by private insurance becomes an out-of-pocket expense for you, the patient.
However, as a York Regional EMS Subscriber, we will only bill Primary and Secondary Insurance providers. Payment from a subscriber’s insurance carrier will satisfy your obligation to us for our service costs.* Non-Subscribers are responsible for payment in full for services, regardless of the amount covered by their insurance carrier. Subscribers shall forward any payments received directly from their insurance carrier to York Regional EMS immediately upon receipt.
Types of Coverage Offered:
“Individual Subscriber” @ $35.00 per person annually
“Household Subscriber” @ $50.00, which includes 2 or more persons who legally live at the same address
*The names of all persons covered must be listed on the back of the enclosed reply card.
Your subscription will become effective on the date which we receive it and it will be valid for one year.
The demand for emergency medical services has grown dramatically over the past several years. As a result, York Regional EMS does not offers scheduled non-emergency transport services. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however our emergency call volume dictates that we remain available to handle 911 calls. If we are already committed to an emergency when you need us, the 911 center will dispatch the next closest available ambulance service. This subscription is also honored by 12 neighboring EMS agencies.
York Regional EMS is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization. Any surplus revenue we may generate each year is used to enhance our operations and prepare for future growth in the community. Your subscription is a major portion of our annual operating revenue. Additional contributions are always welcome, and greatly appreciated. Contribution amounts exceeding subscription rates are tax-deductible; consult your tax adviser for more details.
We thank you in advance for your support and we continue to strive to offer the highest quality emergency medical services possible.
