70 YEARS AS YOUR EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICE
During May/June of 2013 we begin our annual Ambulance Subscription
Drive. Please note that all 2012-2013 subscriptions expired on June
30th, 2013 and a prompt renewal will ensure no loss of benefits to
members. Freeport EMS, Inc. provides emergency medical
treatment/transport and medically necessary, non-emergency transfers to
all members. Your subscription will entitle you to UNLIMITED emergency
service as well as CONDITIONAL non-emergency, but medically necessary
transfers. The advantage to a member is that NO additional out of pocket
expenses will occur if your insurance doesn't pay the entire balance of
your bill, provided conditions are met.
For persons joining the Ambulance Membership, Freeport EMS Inc. reserves
the right to bill for actual services from any third party insurance
carrier that the subscriber may have. There will not be any additional
costs to the subscriber, as the third party insurance coverage would be
accepted as payment in full. Uninsured members would be given a reduced
rate of up to 50% in savings. This allows us to keep subscription rates
to a minimum.
NOW is the time for renewal of all memberships and for new members to
subscribe. Memberships are HIGHLY preferred to be turned in before
September 1st, 2011. All non-subscribers will be responsible for all
unpaid balances for use of the ambulance service.
Non-emergency transfers that are not medically necessary, i.e.,
transports possible by private vehicle or any transports to or from the
physician's office are NOT covered under your membership. These
transports are non-covered services with all insurance carriers and a
fee will be charged to all subscribers requesting this service.
Membership is effective from July 1st, 2012 to June 30th, 2013
Individual (Person living alone)...............$30.00
Many of you continue to make an "additional donation" in
combination with the minimum subscription rate. Your generosity is
sincerely appreciated and is tax deductible.
On May 11, 2010, we celebrated our 70th year of service to the
community. Freeport EMS Inc. will continue to upgrade our service,
including new equipment and training of personnel, so that we may remain
superior in emergency care and continue in the business of saving lives.
We ask for your continued support so that we the volunteers of Freeport
EMS may continue to provide our community with the very best in

pay the entire balance of your bill, provided conditions are met.
