Everyone experiences emergencies from time to time. They're simply a part of life. Unfortunately, they're also costly. For instance, a typical emergency ambulance transport can often exceed $500, and most insurance providers, including Medicare, will not cover the full amount of an ambulance bill.
The Wake County EMS $60 Subscription
Fortunately, we offer all residents of Wake County relief from the direct cost of ambulance services. For $60 per year, you and all permanent residents of your household can receive emergency 9-1-1 ambulance service anywhere in Wake County as many times as needed. Your annual subscription fee relieves you of any direct costs of 9-1-1 ambulance service not paid by your insurance. Your coverage begins two days after receipt of your payment and ends on Dec. 31.
In addition to your family's coverage, all the money from your subscription membership is returned to Wake EMS. This provides valuable operating funds to ensure the continued high level of emergency medical care that you have come to expect.
