Woodland Hills EMS operates an annual Subscription Drive. This provides us capital to make, much needed, upgrades to equipment and training but it is also a benefit to those who subscribe.
Many insurance carriers do not cover an entire ambulance bill. This could leave you with hundreds of dollars out of pocket to pay the remainder of the bill.
Costs to Subscribe:
2020-2021 SUBSCRIPTION RATES

TERMS: Subscription to WHEMS, Inc., entitles the subscriber to unlimited medically necessary emergency ambulance transportation and limited non-emergency medically necessary ambulance transportation, based on availability of crew and vehicle. Medical necessity is determined by Federal and State Regulation and Guidance for Ambulance Service Operations and Billing. Coverage is defined above in the sections applicable to the subscriber.

Any payment provided directly to the subscriber from the insurance carrier must be turned over to WHEMS in its entirety, without regard to subscription level. Failure to remit payment for services rendered, or to turn over any payments received by the patient for services, will result in legal or other action on the part of WHEMS to collect any payment due.
