In 2014, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors voted to approve a new Chapter of the Codified Ordinances to establish the Emgerceny Medical Services (EMS) Transport Reimbursement Program. The Board directed that Loudoun’s fee structure be based on the current market but no higher than 10% over the highest comparable neighboring jurisdiction. The fees are: $467 for Basic Life Support, $660 for Advanced Life Support I and $770 for Advanced Life Support II. If you are transported by ambulance to the hospital, your insurance company, Medicare or Medicaid will be billed first. The focus of the reimbursement program is insurance companies, not private citizens.
The funds received from the program will be directed back to the Fire-Rescue system to include volunteer companies. The money will pay for training, equipment, specialty apparatus, and support personnel.
