From the American Ambulance Association:
Legislative Action Center
The temporary Medicare ambulance add-ons expire at the end of this year. Â This includes the 2% urban and 3% rural increases as well as the super rural bonus payment. Â Senators Charles Schumer, Pat Roberts, Patrick Leahy and Mary Landrieu have introduced the Medicare Ambulance Access Act (S. 1405) which would extend the ambulance add-ons for five years. Â It is critical that Congress extend this relief. Â Please therefore write your Senators and ask that they cosponsor the Medicare Ambulance Access Act. Â Please write today!
