My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Virginia
I hope this is the right area to post this question. If not, I apologize ahead.
I had an accident on April 23rd were I had broken my ankle. I broke my tibia one and fibula twice. I was screaming in pain and not able to move at all so we had to call 911. The hospital is very close, practically in walking distance so it didn't take very long.
Now when I checked my EOB's online I see that I will have to pay $500 for the Ambulance. My insurance told me that the Ambulance was out if Network, the charge was applied towards my Out of Network deductible and I will have to pay the full charge.
I don't think that is right - either from the Ambulance ot the Insurance. There is no way I can make sure to get an ambulance that is in Network with Bluecross Carefirst while being in pain and barely able to talk at all.
Now I found on another forum this quote:
"If I pay my taxes, do I still get a bill for service? No. If you are a taxpayer of the Fire District, the amount your medical insurance(s) pay for a transport will be considered payment in full. The Fire District recognizes that taxpayers already directly or indirectly pay for emergency medical services with a portion of their taxes."
Unfortunately this is about a District in LA. Does any one know if there is something like this for Fairfax County in Virginia?
Thanks for any help.
