The Glens Falls Common Council will hold a public hearing Tuesday on a proposal to increase ambulance rates for the first time in almost nine years. The rate would increase from $500 to $700 for basic life support; from $800 to $1,000 for advanced life support-level one; and from $1,000 to $1,400 for advanced life support-level two. The rate when an ambulance from the Glens Falls Fire Department intercepts a call from another agency on mutual aid would increase from $250 to $350. Mileage would increase from $25 to $30. In addition, the city is adding a fee of $150 when the ambulance responds to a call but the patient refuses to be transported to the hospital. Glens Falls currently does not charge in that situation, known as treat and release.
