The Special Patient Program was developed to maintain the quality of life for people with rare conditions or unique care needs. The program ensures that paramedics know about the patient’s special needs – so when EHS is called to help, our paramedics will have quick access to the information they need about you or your loved one.
If an ambulance fee will create financial hardship, EHS offers a repayment schedule. If you aren’t able to pay your bill because you don’t have enough income, you can apply to have the fee waived.
