Ambulance Transportation

The city collects an ambulance service fee from all ambulance users, based on the level of care provided and the transport distance to a medical facility. Non-residents pay a higher fee. Fees are only imposed when the Fire Department ambulance provides transportation to an emergency room at a local hospital. There is no charge for emergency response without transport. Most health insurance policies, including Medicare, provide coverage for this type of service. The Park Ridge Fire Department became a certified provider for Medicare and Medicaid when the City first instituted the ambulance fees.

Ambulance fees are set by City ordinance to be in accordance with Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement schedules. No payment is requested or accepted at the time of service. Billing normally occurs within a few weeks of the incident. In cases of repeat users where insurance information is already on record, the bill is sent directly to the insurance provider and not to the patient.

Questions regarding ambulance service fees or billing questions can be directed to the Park Ridge Fire Department at (847) 318-5264 or email .
