Commissioners approve EMS billing contract

| May 1, 2013

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Commissioners met today, May 1, with Bernie Minet from the Coshocton County EMS to discuss and approve bids received by eight different companies for billing. The bid was awarded to Ambulance Medical Billing because they met the Coshocton EMS requirements and specifications and they were the lowest bid at $14 per claim. A three-year contract will begin July 1 of this year with the option to renew for an additional two years. Currently, Coshocton County EMS is billing through Med 3,000, which ask $16 per claim. They have been with Med 3,000 since 2008. The new billing contract will not affect patients financially.
