Ambulance Billing

Emergency medical services, including ambulance transportation, are provided by the City of Poway as part of the Poway Fire Department operations. The city's Finance Division bills patients for ambulance services. As a courtesy, the city will submit claims to private insurance companies, TriCare, Medicare, and Medi-Cal for emergency ambulance services provided by the Poway Fire Department. However, before we can bill your insurance company, we need your written authorization. Please fill out and return the Insurance Billing Authorization Form (PDF) with a copy of your insurance card.

Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) Notice
Patient confidentiality is important. After transport by ambulance services, each patient is given a pamphlet which contains important information about how medical information is used and how information can be accessed. The HIPAA Notice (PDF) explains the Fire Department's legal duties and privacy practices with respect to your Protected Health Information (PHI).
