Medicare Pays for Ambulance Services

Sometimes it is hard to figure out just what Medicare will and won’t pay for as they are a government run insurance entity. However, by searching their handouts and websites you can find out that services like ambulances are covered by the policies. Here is what it entails if you have to be transported by ambulance and you have Medicare.

First, you have to have been transported by ambulance because transportation by any other means would have been hazardous to your health. In other words, if your transportation’s delay would have caused a deterioration in your health it is covered. The ambulance is also covered if your doctor has determined that it is the best way to be emergency transported in your condition.

All ambulance suppliers must accept the terms of this deal and the terms are that it applies to your Medicare Part B deductible. You will pay just 20% of the Medicare approved amount for the services and everything will then be taken care of.
