The Troy Fire Department transports all of our patients to hospitals based upon the guidelines set forth by the Greater Miami Valley EMS Council. These guidelines are our operating protocols and are administered under the direction of our Medical Director.Under these protocols, the TFD transports all of our patients to the closest and most appropriate hospital. We do take into consideration the preference of the patient and preexisting conditions or ongoing treatment unless any of the following conditions are present:•It is medically necessary to transport the patient to the closest hospital for stabilization.• It is unsafe to transport the patient to the preferred/recommended facility due to adverse weather or ground conditions or excessive transport time.• Transporting the patient to the preferred/recommended facility would cause a critical shortage of local EMS resources.In certain situations including special pediatric emergencies, special cardiac or stroke emergencies and trauma emergencies, our crews would transport to the appropriate facilities specified in our protocols.If there are any questions, please contact our administrative office at:(937) 339-0495
Please understand that billing for EMS transport is a nearly universal concept that’s been in place for decades not only in the Miami Valley but throughout the state of Ohio and nation. We are not unique and we try to manage our costs to minimize any burdens to only those that are truly necessary. Our community is very fortunate to receive professional Paramedic-level service on every call.Taxes pay for our training, certification, readiness, facilities and equipment used to provide full-time, Paramedic-level emergency medical services. Our ambulance billing revenue only offsets a portion of our overall operating expenses.If you have questions about or need assistance with paying your bill, we would be happy to have our billing firm contact you with available options.
