Welcome


Dear Patient,
Thank you for visiting our Emergency Medical Services web site. The statement you have received is for an ambulance transport provided to you or a family member by East Pierce Fire & Rescue. You may find the following information helpful.

Insurance Information


If we do not have insurance information, a request was included with your statement.

If we have insurance information, the insurance company has been billed and the statement reflects any remaining balance that may be due.

If there is any other insurance that can be billed, please provide us with that information. You may download and fill out the insurance information form to the right and mail, fax or email a scanned copy of it to the billing service department.

Levy Information


If you live within East Pierce Fire & Rescue boundaries, then, after all insurance(s) have been billed, any balance not covered by your insurance will be paid out of EMS Levy funds. If you are a resident and have no insurance coverage, the EMS Levy will cover your bill. You will continue to receive statements until you have provided us with your insurance information, or you have verified that you have no coverage.

If you live outside of East Pierce Fire & Rescue boundaries, you are financially responsible for any portion of your bill not paid by your insurance(s). If you are not a resident and you are uninsured, you are responsible for the total amount of your bill.

If you live within East Pierce Fire & Rescue boundaries, then you are considered a resident and there will be a levy message on your billing statement. If you do not see a levy message on your billing statement, this means that you are not considered a resident for ambulance billing purposes.

Financial Assistance


Financial Assistance is available to those who are eligible. If you or your family’s annual income is at or below the national poverty guidelines for this area, an application may be downloaded using the link to the right.
