Ambulance Membership Program
The City of Tuttle provides the Emergency Medical Services Ambulance Membership Program citywide for $5.00 per month per household. Households are automatically enrolled in the Ambulance Membership Program, though residents may choose to opt out of the plan during the month of May. If you have previously opted out you may reenroll during open enrollment in May.
The typical ambulance ride costs over $1,500 but through this program residents participating in the program will pay no out-of-pocket expenses, such as private insurance deductibles for emergency ambulance rides, for all permanent members living in their household.
When a participant is transported to the hospital by EMS for an emergency, the ambulance service will collect money from the resident’s insurance, Medicaid or Medicare. Patients without insurance will benefit from a 40% discounted rate for EMS.
Residents will be able to opt-out of the program from May 1 to May 30, 2013 by submitting an opt-out form that will be included with the April utility bill, by printing the online opt-out form HERE or by stopping by at City Hall. No action will be needed for residents wanting to participate in the program.
For more information contact Tuttle City Hall at 381-2335.
