Frequently Asked Questions about Billing:
1- Why did I received a bill for services provided by Flemington-Raritan First Aid & Rescue Squad?
You received a bill because you utilized our services during an emergency. Although our organization is primarily operated and staffed by our volunteer members, we do employee career staff to ensure our station is staffed 24/7. To off-set this cost and ensure our ability to offer a high level of emergency services we rely on the financial support from the patients we provide service to. This bill should be submitted to any insurance provider you may have.
2- What are the billing rates for emergency transport to the hospital?
Our current base rate for BLS transport is $850.00 plus $18.00 per mile transported. Additional fees may be added for the use of specialty equipment or rescue services. These rates are in line with the industry standard and other local agencies who provide a like service. The rates are revised annually.
