NAEMT | Quick Survey on EMS Utilization of COVID-19 Waivers
EMS Utilization of COVID-19 Waiver Survey
|Please help our industry understand how EMS has utilized the current COVID-19 waivers. The results of this survey will be used to educate federal regulators and elected officials on EMS reimbursement reform. The survey will take no longer than five (5) minutes to complete and will ask how your ambulance agency has utilized the waivers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the ongoing Public Health Emergency (PHE), CMS issued four waivers to assist ambulance agencies. Separate from the CMS ET3 project, these waivers allowed for reimbursement for transporting to alternate destination of care, treatment in lieu of transport, hospital at home utilizing community paramedics, and telehealth facilitation.
We kindly ask that ONE leader from your agency take the survey before March 14. No identifiable information will be shared or distributed. NAEMT will share the results of the survey with its members and participants.
Thank you for taking time to participate in this survey to advance EMS!
