Subscription Program Information
Our Ambulance Subscription Program provides residents of the municipalities we serve protection from out-of-pocket expenses related to emergency medical services. For a small yearly fee, subscribers receive unlimited medically necessary emergency ambulance service and discounts on services which are not deemed medically necessary or patient responsibility by their insurance carrier.
Something most residents are not aware of, we do not receive any direct tax dollar support from the communities we serve! Our funding comes from our Subscription program, our donation program and fees for service. So your participation in our Subscription program allows the community to support the Ambulance Authority which, in turn, directly helps fund us so we can continue to provide you the highest levels of patient care.

Frequently Asked Questions
Medical emergencies can happen at any time. You never know when you or your loved ones may need an ambulance.
When Emergency Medical Services (EMS/Ambulance) personnel render medical care, the patient is billed for the services received.
The patient’s insurance may only cover part or even none of the bill (depending on the individual’s insurance plan, co-pays, deductible, etc.). The remaining amount after the insurance reimbursement falls on the patient to pay.
Your subscription protects you from these unexpected out-of-pocket expenses.

Subscription coverage is applied to a subscriber’s bill balance for any 911 ambulance response by MFPAA after receiving all insurance payments. Once all insurance payments are applied, subscribers receive a 100% discount on any remaining out-of-pocket expenses (including deductibles, co-payments, etc.) related to medically necessary emergency ambulance services, only.
A donation is any dollar amount donated by our generous residents that are not applied to the subscription program. Donations are critical to the operations of MFPAA and all donations are greatly appreciated.
