EMS billing is a service fee charged by the City of Monroe for ambulance transportation to a hospital facility.
The City of Monroe will bill the insurance carriers of Monroe residents who are insured or have Medicare coverage. The City of Monroe will bill all non-residents that are transported via EMS, even if they are not insured.In other words, if you live in Monroe and do not have health insurance, we will not bill you.
For those who live in Monroe, the ambulance bill goes directly to third-party payers (insurance companies.) Third-party payers include Medicare, Medicaid, and private health insurers. No bill should ever be sent directly to a person living in Monroe, even if the third-party does not pay.
For those who do not live Monroe, the initial ambulance transport billing is sent a third-party payer, if available. If the bill is not paid by Medicare, Medicaid or a private health insurer, Monroe will bill the individual.
You may receive an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from your insurance carrier. This is not a bill. Your insurance carrier may not reimburse the city for the full fee, but if you live in Monroe, you are not responsible for this difference.
EMS reports are available in compliance with the HIPAA privacy laws to protect the medical information of all patients. Contact the fire department at 513-539-8380 to request a copy of an EMS report.
The City of Monroe contracts with Change Healthcare to process all EMS billing. Please feel free to call them with any questions or concerns related to your ambulance bill at 1-855-626-9660
