Gephardt Gets Ambulance Issue Right
If you are in a motorcycle accident and someone calls for an ambulance that shows up and you are not injured and the attendants do nothing for you have to pay for the ambulance? The answer is yes now, maybe but probably not in the future.
Bill Gephardt took on this issue and brought to the attention a rule implemented by the State Bureau of E.M.S. who interpreted a two-year-old bill sponsered by Paul Ray. Representative Ray is taking the bill back to the rule-makers to make sure they get it right this time around and outlaw the charges applied and payable to the uninjured victim.
