In a medical emergency, transport to the hospital by ambulance could save your life. But even with health insurance, it can be costly. As a Mercy Hospital El Reno Emergency Medical Service (EMS) subscriber, you can be assured that if you need our service, we will accept your insurance payment as payment in full. A subscription:
Includes the primary subscriber, spouse and financially dependent children up to age 21 who live at the subscriber’s residence.
Covers emergency ground transports in the El Reno EMS service area to a hospital emergency room.
Covers medically necessary non-emergency transports if insurance company or third-party provides benefit for the transport.
Even if you do not subscribe to the program, please know that emergency transports are based on medical need, not membership status.
If you are in an accident or have a medical condition that requires you to be transported by ambulance service and do not have a membership, you could be responsible for costly out-of-pocket charges for your transport. Health insurance often varies on the amount of coverage provided for ambulance transport, but as a Mercy Hospital El Reno EMS subscriber, you will have the peace of mind in knowing that your ambulance transport will not create an extra financial hardship on you or your family.
As a member, Mercy will accept your insurance payment as payment in full — no need to pay your high deductible or co-payment for the ambulance transport.
If you require a non-emergency transport and do not have insurance or other third-party coverage, or if you have insurance and the claim is denied, the EMS subscription member will be charged a reduced fee equal to 60 percent of Mercy Hospital El Reno’s standard non-emergency fee. A non-emergency transport occurs when a hospital emergency room is not the final destination. To schedule a non-emergency transport, call 405-295-1356.
The Mercy Hospital El Reno Emergency Medical Service subscription service area includes: Calumet, Union City and El Reno (north to Highway 3, east to Banner Road, west to mile marker 108, and south to the Canadian River Bridge, which is south of Union City).
For more information, send us an email or call 405-295-1050.
