Savvik |Ford Vehicles – 3 Day Order Window

The Ford order bank for Super Duty (F250-F600) will open for government orders on 11/7/2022 and will close on 11/10/2022.
This will be the only opportunity to order Super Duty for the entire 2023 model year using a Government Price Concession.

If the Savvik member happens to have a non-government Fleet Id Number (FIN), they can begin ordering 10/20/2022 and will have the ability to order up to 5 units per quarter.

Congress Passes $900 Billion Stimulus Package with Ambulance Relief

Last night, the U.S. House of Representatives followed soon after by the United States Senate passed an approximately $900 billion legislative package to provide additional economic relief to businesses and individuals struggling from the COVID-19 pandemic. The package also contained numerous unrelated policy changes with several provisions on interest to ground ambulance service organizations. The AAA is currently analyzing the legislative text of the massive 3,000 plus page package and will provide members with the final analysis. In the meantime, below are some highlights.

Sequestration Delay

Sequestration, which reduces Medicare reimbursement by 2% for Medicare providers and suppliers, is suspended through March 31, 2021.

Provider Relief Fund

An additional $3 billion is added to the Provider Relief Fund administered by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Balance Billing

Health care providers will no longer be able to balance bill patients with private insurance. Rates will be determined through an arbitration process. The restrictions do not apply to ground ambulance services. The AAA along with the International Association of Fire Chiefs, International Association of Firefighters and National Association of EMTs successfully educated lawmakers about the oversight role of local governments in 911 EMS systems. The legislation instead establishes an Advisory Committee on Ground Ambulance Billing which will issue a report to Congress on its findings. The AAA will be pushing for representatives of the AAA to be on the Committee.

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

Another round of $284 billion in PPP funding is made available to small businesses hit especially hard by the pandemic. Businesses must employ 300 or fewer employees and report losses of 25% or more in order to qualify. For ground ambulance service organizations which receive PPP funds under the past round or the current one, expenses covered by forgiven funds will now be deductible.

 

Today’s AAA webinar, “Wrapping Up a Year for the Record Books”, will include an overview of the stimulus package. This webinar is free for AAA members. Register Here!
