The all-inclusive base rate for ambulance transport is
determined by two variables:
Sedgwick County has five levels of base rate charges that
range from $350 to $700. In addition to the base rate charge, a mileage charge
of $11 per loaded mile is added.
Sedgwick County EMS contracts with a third-party billing
vendor to process claims on behalf of patients. The ambulance crew will collect
the responsible party and any insurance information at the time of service.
We will provide that information to our billing vendor who submits the claim to
the designated insurance carrier or carriers for processing.
Sedgwick County EMS or any of its employees cannot
guarantee an insurance provider will approve and pay the claim for transport.
Each beneficiary should understand their specific insurance plan as they vary
with respect to ambulance coverage, co-pays and deductibles.
Certain laws require that you be provided "notice" of our privacy practices
that relate to your medical information. Our privacy practices are contained
