All claims for Medicare Part B recipients are submitted directly to the carrier. In an effort to make certain that the patient receives a quick return, claims are filed electronically.

The Johnson County Ambulance Service accepts assignment of Medicare Part B. This means that the service has agreed to accept the Medicare allowable charges as payment in full. The Medicare carrier determines the allowable charges and if the service is medically necessary. Medicare pays 80% of the allowable charges to JCAS. The patient is responsible for any co-insurance amounts, non-covered services and deductibles.

If a patient has supplemental coverage, this information will be submitted with the Medicare claim.

At the time of the transport, our paramedics will request insurance information for claim filing. They will also request that you or a family member sign a waiver, which allows us to file an insurance claim in your behalf.
