Tabernacle Rescue Squad

Emergency Medical Service

Reimbursement Program Summary

 

Tabernacle Rescue Squad (TRS) has implemented an EMS

Service Reimbursement Program effective February 1, 2013

 

In the past, EMS was funded solely through an annual stipend provided by the Tabernacle Township and the generosity of donations from our residents. With this change, EMS will be funded primarily with revenues generated from service delivery reimbursement.

 

The Tabernacle Rescue Squad has implemented an EMS Service Reimbursement Program which will allow revenue to be generated by billing Medicare/Medicaid, insurers and other third party payment programs for EMS services rendered. It is the intent of this program, to seek service reimbursement, only from insurance revenues collected for Qualified Township Residents. Qualified Township Residents are defined as individuals who reside within Tabernacle Township, or non-residents who own real estate in Tabernacle Township and pay property taxes. This means that Qualified Township Residents would not be personally billed for insurance co-payments, deductibles, rejected claims, for unpaid balances and if they are uninsured. Tabernacle Township will provide a stipend to TRS which will reimburse TRS for copayments, deductibles, and other cost-sharing amounts that would otherwise be paid by Qualified Township Residents. Tabernacle Township collects property taxes from Qualified Township Residents, and the Township uses its collected revenues to pay the EMS stipend on behalf of Qualified Township Residents. This EMS Service Reimbursement Program, for our Township is based on guidance issued by the HHS Office of Inspector General in the form of Advisory Opinions reviewing similar arrangements. Non-Township Residents’ insurance providers will also be billed, but unlike Qualified Township Resident’s, nonresidents will be personally responsible for EMS service reimbursement balances not paid for by their insurance carriers. In addition, if an individual is injured while they are involved in the commission of criminal activity, the individual’s insurer will be billed, and the individual will be responsible for paying TRS for cost-sharing amounts and/or amounts not covered by insurance, even if the individual is a Qualified Township Resident.

 

Tabernacle Rescue Squad is available to speak with any township resident to answer any questions that you may have about the EMS Service Reimbursement Program and to an answer questions related to EMS Billing. Please feel free to contact President Jamie Wood at 609-268-0671 ext. 201.
