    Coronavirus Discussion Thread

    Mortality rate is not 4.1+, it's that because we only test those that are basically getting admitted. We are not testing those with mild symptoms. When you only use those that are admitted and use death rate to get mortality rate, you will get highly elevated rate. Instead look at SK numbers...

    Schaefer Ambulance Service

    Any company that do not have solid private contract will go out of business sooner then later. Unfortunately that was true with Bower and it's true with this company. Medicare is not what it used to be and as such private contract is the only thing that keep most companies in business. I expect...

    BLS Non-Emergent Transport of Dialysis Pts and how to justify Medical Necessity

    I am going to assume you are talking about medi/medi. My basic advice is to tell your owners it to drop the insurance. Look around the industry, without giving legal advice which is not permitted in this forum I can say that many companies have closed as result of medi/medi action. I would also...

    Gotta put the Grandma in a nursing home

    medi-cal/medicaid does cover nursing home. If your family have money i would suggest you look at board and care. They are usually much better compare to nursing home.

    What your company basically is claiming that 2+2=5 when everyone else is saying 4. The reimbursement rate are just not there, it is pretty much impossible to pay close to 100k per emt without going bankrupt. 100k is what many people with Bs degree don't even make
