CMS Ambulance Cost Data Survey Grants

Shawn Baird, President Elect American Ambulance Association, has shared the following opportunity heads-up:

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced  requirements for cost data reporting by ambulance services for the 2020 calendar year. While there will be much more information soon to come, 22 services in Oregon were selected as required to submit data at the end of 2020. The American Ambulance Association is developing a robust toolkit to assist small and volunteer services comply, and will be making grants available for the toolkit. Stay tuned to https://ambulancereports.org/ for the latest information.  ALL of our future reimbursement will depend on the survey being accurately completed so let us help!
