5-24-21 Increase in Fee Schedule
Earlier this month the Jackson City council discussed making some changes to the City's Fee schedule. One of the fees that was approved to be increased was the specialty care transport fee for the ambulance service. The City of Jackson Ambulance new billing company indicated that a lot of ambulance services have a separate rate for specialty care transports. These are transports that include having a registered nurse ride along so they are able to administer medications and perform other essential functions for the patients well being. The billing company recommended the fee be $2000, which is what most ambulance services charge. In the past the patient had to pay whatever the hospital charged to have an RN on the transport.
The other fee that was increased was the fee for tags when you have extra garbage. That increase went from $4.00 to $5.00.
