Pending Reimbursement, AAA Seeks Info on Treatment in Place Programs


CMS now has authority under certain circumstances related to the Public Health Emergency to waive the transport language set forth in the Social Security Act that it views as prohibiting the Medicare program from reimbursing ground ambulance services when there is no transport of the beneficiary.  

CMS will likely want to understand the scope and the documentation of ground ambulance services provided during the pandemic when there was a communitywide EMS protocol in place that prohibited transporting certain patients.  

The American Ambulance Association asks providers to please take a few moments to complete a brief survey related to your service's treatment in place practices during the Public Health Emergency.
