What is compassionate billing?

Compassionate billing is intended to eliminate or minimize out-of-pocket expenses for ambulance transport services received by York County citizens and visitors. York County regards taxes paid by its residents as co-pays and/or deductibles for ambulance transport service, for all persons residing in York County households. Non-County residents will be assessed normal deductibles and co-pays in addition to the amount the insurance companies approve for payment. Uninsured or under-insured patients who demonstrate financial hardship will be eligible for a hardship waiver, sliding scale deductibles, or a payment plan that may require moderate payments with no interest or penalties.
