Great Falls EMS’s Justin Grohs on Ambulance Reimbursement

“EMS and Ambulance services are integral to the healthcare fabric of our communities, so it is essential that our reimbursement is not outstripped by the costs of providing service. As an unsubsidized local provider, we rely on the American Ambulance Association’s efforts to ensure Medicare payments are sufficient to allow us to continue serving our communities.”
