MACo Supports Bills Seeking to Modernize Emergency Transporters Reimbursements

On March 4, 2020,  MACo Legislative Director Natasha Mehu testified to the House Health & Government Operations Committee to support three bills that all seek to modernize reimbursement for services provided by emergency service transporters to better meet growing demands and needs for services. Each bill proposes a slightly different way to increase reimbursements for emergency service transporters:

From the MACo Testimony:

Emergency service transporters provide vital services to county residents in times of emergency and distress. They deserve to be adequately reimbursed for the treatment and services they provide. The mounting costs of emergency service transports and treatments are exceedingly being borne by county and volunteer providers without adequate increases in State support.
