The cost of ambulance service varies depending on the level of service provided. Most insurance companies, including Medicare and commercial providers, pay only a portion of the cost of ambulance care and transportation, requiring the patient to pay a co-payment or deductible. Second Alarmer’s Rescue Squad operates five stations, 7 days a wee...k, 365 days a year, with a committed staff providing Advanced Life Support Service. Providing a dedicated staff of pre-hospital healthcare professionals around the clock is very expensive. We use funds raised by our annual subscription drive to purchase no ambulances and state-of-the-art medical equipment. Our costs to provide this valuable service continue to rise, while reimbursement by insurance companies has dropped. As a contributor to our subscription drive, at the indicated amount, SARS will waive any charges NOT covered by insurance, including deductibles and co-pays.
