Ambulance

ambulanceThe Hilltop Ambulance Association was established in 1987 and serves the Boroughs of Westmont, Southmont and Brownstown. Professional Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians are employed and in-station 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide immediate care in your time of need. The ambulance association relies on the income from the yearly membership drive, insurance reimbursement, and donations through the ambulance fund to cover its operating expenses. We need your help to continue to provide the quality emergency medical care that is so desperately needed. A membership in the ambulance service for $40.00 per year (2014) covers the entire household, including visitors. Membership applications are mailed during January, take effect in February and are good for a year. If you have lost your membership application, call 255-7777 to receive a new one. Members receive unlimited local emergency service, medically necessary non-emergency ambulance transport, and the completion of insurance forms for your transport. The average ambulance run costs $640.00 and insurance companies usually only pay approximately $400, leaving the patient responsible for $240.00. But, as a member, the ambulance association accepts the insurance payment as payment in full as long as the patient’’s copayment is made and writes off the unpaid balance. Non-members must pay all unpaid balances.
