Ambulance and HospitalAdditional Billing Information
The patient is responsible for the payment of the ambulance bill. An invoice is sent as soon as practical after the service is provided. Approximately 1 month after the service, if no payment is made or if there remains an account balance, a statement is sent to the responsible party. Any further billing contact is through an account management company helps the responsible party with budgeting, insurance claim interaction, or other counseling aid. After a reasonable period an account may be assigned to a collection agent or pursued in court.
