Need a ride? Pay monthly for Edmond ambulance service

by Diana Baldwin Published: September 26, 2013
Residents have until Oct. 30 to opt out or sign up for the city’s program that provides ambulance service for $3 a month.

The monthly fee attached to utility bills pays for a membership in Emergency Medical Services Authority’s TotalCare program. EMSA will pay what the resident’s insurance does not pay or the total bill if there is no insurance, said Ross VanderHamm, city finance director and city clerk.

“There are no changes in the program,” VanderHamm said.

Residents can check their utility bills for the $3 charge listed as TotalCare to determine if they are enrolled.

Apartment dwellers can participate even if the owner chooses to opt out of the TotalCare program. To sign up individually, call 396-2888.

To opt out, call 359-4541.
