Getting a ride in an Everett Fire ambulance will now cost more. The City Council just approved a set of rate increases to help Everett Fire match what other fire agencies in the region charge. For Everett, a basic EFD ambulance ride will be $680, up from $488. An ambulance ride providing first-level advanced life support services will cost $890, up from $694; second-level advanced care will cost $980, up from $800. Second-level advanced care is for serious medical needs, such as needing defibrillation or chest compressions during the ride. The per-mileage rate will be $18.50. So, imagining someone has a heart attack at the Everett Mall, their advanced care ambulance ride to Providence hospital might create a $1,128 bill. Health insurers pay toward medical transportation within the guidelines of your policy.
