Lawmakers joined EMS personnel Wednesday to push legislation to help EMS providers overcome financial burdens. "From childhood, we are taught to call 911 in the event of an emergency. We assume someone will be there to help no matter what," said Rep. Martin Causer (R-Cameron/McKean/Potter) a former EMT. "But as ambulance companies and emergency services of all types struggle with a lack of human and financial resources, we can no longer take it for granted. It's time we answer the call to save our ambulance services." The rally Wednesday focused on increasing reimbursements to ambulance companies for the services they provide and for being reimbursed if they provide medical services even if no one is taken to a hospital. Three bills are pushing for these changes House Bill 1013, House Bill 699 and Senate Bill 1003.
