Phone: (757) 253-6864
James City County residents are invited to attend presentations scheduled in January to learn more about the County's proposal to obtain financial reimbursement for emergency ambulance transportation.
James City is considering joining a growing number of localities in the Commonwealth that are seeking reimbursements for emergency ambulance transportation. Patients who demonstrate financial hardship will be eligible for a hardship waiver or a payment plan will be offered requiring moderate payments with no interest or penalties. Citizens will also be able to subscribe to a yearly subscription service (EMS Passport) designed to help pay out-of-pocket expenses resulting from emergency ambulance transportation.
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) revenue recovery would help maintain and enhance the current level of emergency medical services and also provide for increasing demands due to population growth.
All meetings will be held at 7 p.m. at the following locations:
- Wednesday, January 5, Jamestown High School, Lecture Hall, 3751 John Tyler Highway
- Thursday, January 6, Human Services Center, Auditorium, 5249 Olde Towne Road
- Monday, January10, Rawls Byrd School, Cafeteria, 112 Laurel Lane
- Wednesday, January 12, James City County Library, Community Room, 7770 Croaker Road
- Thursday, January13, James River Community Center, Cafeteria, 8901 Pocahontas Trail
