|On March 18, 2015, the Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors adopted Chapter 8, Section 8-6 Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Cost Recovery, of the Fluvanna County Code to defray costs and improve services associated with providing EMS transport services by collecting a user fee for emergency ambulance transports.|
Fluvanna County’s EMS Cost Recovery program is a compassionate model that collects money for system operations from the people who receive services, with the vast majority of the revenues collected directly from Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance companies.
The rate charged for transport services depends on the level of medical service required by the patient, the level of expertise of the responders (EMS, Paramedic, etc.), and the number of miles the patient travels in the ambulance.
Current Fees (125% of Medicare Allowable Charges): (Effective January 1, 2016)
Basic Life Support (BLS): $449
Advanced Life Support 1 (ALS1): $533
Advanced Life Support 2 (ALS2): $772
Mileage (All Service Levels): $13.71 per loaded mile.

because of a lack of insurance or an inability to pay.
