East Allen Township Volunteer Ambulance Corps is an independently operated nonprofit organization that receives minimal financial support from the township government. Therefore, only a small portion of our budget comes from other areas, leaving the large majority coming from insurance billing and limited amount of grants available for EMS services.
The donations we receive through our annual subscription drive helps purchase vital lifesaving equipment, first aid supplies, and for continuing education to make sure our EMTs are trained to the highest level possible.
Without your continued support, East Allen EMS will not be the organization it is today.
Whenever EATVAC provides the service, our billing
company submits the bill to your insurance company. If your insurance company reimburses any portion of the bill, we’ll accept it for payment in full for those who have given the requested subscription fee.
Important to note:
- If insurance payments are made directly to you, it is your responsibility to submit it to the ambulance service.
- If you do not have insurance or if your insurance denies your claim as not medically necessary, youwill be responsible for the payment of your claim including deductibles and co-pays.
The following services ARE NOT covered by your subscription:
Alternative modes of non-emergency transportation, including wheelchair van transports. Certain ambulance transports (emergent and non-emergent), which may be denied or deemed outside the limits of your insurance coverage and /or do not meet established medical necessity criteria; Any charges related to long-distance ambulance mileage charges or transport fees, which are based solely on the patient and/or physician preference.
Unless your non-emergency transport is medically necessary your insurance will seldom pay for it.
Transports that are not medically necessary may be arranged, but are the financial responsibility of the patient and it is expected to be paid at the time of the transport.
EATVAC does not provide Wheel Chair Van Services at this time.
