IF YOU DO EMS TRANSPORTS AND BILL FOR YOUR SERVICE
HB 1372 COULD CAUSE YOU TO LOSE INCOME
The IVFA & the IFCA opposes the ambulance provision in HB 1372 in this year’s Indiana General Assembly which would prohibit a provider of ambulance service that transports a covered individual to an in network facility or from an in network facility to another facility from charging more than the amount allowed under the network plan applying to the covered individual's coverage.
The bill has passed the House of Representatives and will be heard by the Senate Insurance Committee on Wednesday, February 12.
EMS is already underfunded and DHS estimates this provision would decrease EMS reimbursement by 22%.
Listed below are the members of the Senate Insurance Committee and the area of our state they represent: Please join the IVFA, the IFCA, and many others in asking these and other senators to remove the ambulance provision language in HB 1372
