PASADENA — ColoradoBoulevard.net:
Pasadena Fire Department announced the implementation of an annual membership program to residents of Pasadena and is designed as an alternative to paying higher direct fees for paramedic and ambulance services.
By News Desk
For $85 per year (less than $7 per month), this voluntary Paramedic Subscription Program provides coverage for fees associated with any paramedic services or emergency transportation provided. The fee covers the subscriber and all other members of their household related by blood, marriage or adoption.
The charge for an ambulance transport can be as high as $3,000. Even with medical insurance, copays and deductibles can range between $50 to $500 for transport. When paramedics are needed, cost should not be a concern.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer this cost-savings program to community members,” said EMS Battalion Chief Jason Hansen. With the rising cost of everything these days, this is an amazing deal for participants—especially since it covers all members of your household.”
Membership in the Paramedic Subscription Program provides unlimited use of Pasadena Fire Department’s emergency medical system. Every dollar received through the program is used to enhance emergency medical services to the community and to improve the local paramedic system.
