Is the $1,500 maximum per person annual membership benefit usually going to be enough to cover the portion of the bill not paid by medical insurance or provider?

For nearly every member, the answer is “yes.” On average, members who receive ambulance services incur approximately $800 per year of charges in excess of what their medical insurance or provider pays for ambulance services. Less than one percent of the members of the Ambulance Membership Program have ever had charges not paid by their medical insurance carrier in excess of $1,500 in one year.
