EMS Ambulance Subscription Plans
The Caroline County Emergency Medical Services’ Ambulance Subscription Plan guarantees that in an emergency, you will not be charged for ambulance transportation to the hospital.
Even if you have excellent insurance, the cost of ambulance transportation can exceed $600. Starting at just $45 per year for an individual or family of two, this plan ensures that you won’t have any expenses associated with transportation from your home to the hospital in the event of an emergency. The cost for a family of three or more is $75. Businesses with up to five employees can enroll for $100 per year, with each additional employee costing just $10.
Enrollment in the Ambulance Subscription Plan also gives back to the community - funds are used to support Caroline's emergency medical providers, including eight volunteer fire companies and the county paramedics. If you are interested in enrolling in the plan, please visit the Ambulance Subscription Plan page here.
Our medical billing contractor, Medical Claim Aid, will handle all EMS billing inquiries. Please contact Medical Claim Aid regarding specific questions pertaining to your EMS service invoice at 410-479-4790.
