Membership works with insurance
Members may be responsible for a portion of their discounted charge for ambulance services since ambulance transportation is not always covered 100% by private insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid.
In some cases, members covered by Medicare or Medicaid are covered 100% for the cost of a pre-hospital ambulance transport due to a sudden illness or accident.
Regardless of insurance coverage, your Acadian membership guarantees you a 20% discount on all billed ambulance service charges within the Acadian Ambulance service area. Members can expect to be responsible for payment of up to 80% of all charges.
Acadian takes an assignment of the member's rights under their insurance policy and attempts to collect directly from the insurance company.
Please note that many insurance policies don't cover trips to doctors' offices, even if authorized by the physician.
