The City of Bedford offers Bedford residents an ambulance subscription service to help offset the high costs of emergency ambulance transportation. Insurance companies routinely do not pay the entire amount of ambulance transportation, leaving the patient with the responsibility of paying the balance of the bill. The purpose of the subscription service is to cover the amount not covered by your insurance provider or Medicare. For $60 per year (per family), you will never have to worry about paying an ambulance bill. Medicaid recipients or persons not covered under a primary insurance policy are not eligible for this program.
The completed application form and enrollment fee can be mailed or brought in-person to Fire Administration at Station 1, located at 1816 Bedford Rd. For more information, please call 817-952-2500.
