Ambulance Transport Billing Policy
In July, 2002, the Board of Directors of Mehlville Fire Protection District enacted a billing policy for ambulance transport services.
Residents of the District provide financial support through the payment of annual taxes. Accordingly, when a resident receives ambulance transport services, the District shall collect only that amount of money which is payable under the resident's insurance policy. The resident shall not have an obligation, such as a co-payment or deductible, to the District because such payments have been made to the District through the payment of their taxes.
Non-residents have not paid any taxes to Mehlville Fire Protection District. Therefore, non-residents who receive ambulance transport services shall be assessed a fee for such services and shall be obligated to pay the full amount of the fee including, but not limited to, the amount otherwise covered by an applicable insurance coverage.
Individuals who have been transported by Mehlville Fire Protection District ambulance and did not supply adequate health insurance information, at the time, will receive an inquiry from the District’s third party billing administrator, Intermedix, on behalf of Mehlville FPD. The patient or patient’s representative can fill out the requested information and return it to:
4251 Kipling Street, Suite 200
Wheat Ridge, CO 80033
If the patient or patient’s representative would prefer, they may send the requested information to:
Attn: Ambulance Billing
11020 Mueller Road
St. Louis, MO 63123
Residents who may be involved in a third party liability case will be obligated to pay for the ambulance transport service that has been provided to them. The District considers that third party litigation involves a monetary settlement which the District considers a form of insurance coverage. Consequently, the resident will receive some sort of monetary settlement based on the pending litigation and potential settlement which is governed by the Missouri Revised Statute Chapters 190 and 430 regarding Emergency Services & Liens.
