Will insurance pay my ambulance bill?
Some insurance plans do not cover the full cost of Advanced Life Support ambulance services. Non-members are responsible for all costs not covered by insurance. Pro-Med Plus members never have to pay any out of pocket costs for care that falls within program guidelines. Pro-Med Plus membership fees do not cover the actual cost of service. Acceptance of insurance reimbursement allows us to keep the membership cost affordable and provides us with essential funds to maintain and improve services. For medically necessary transports, Pro-Med bills your insurance and then Pro-Med Plus covers what insurance does not. Plus members have no out-of-pocket expense for medically necessary ambulance service.

About Your Ambulance Service
Professional Med Team Ambulance (Pro-Med), is a nationally accredited not-for-profit community service that was created in 1986. It is owned by Hackley Health Systems and Mercy General Health Partners, but operates as a self-sufficient company. Pro-Med responds to 9-1-1 emergency calls in Muskegon County and the Hesperia area. It also responds to requests for non-emergency ambulance transportation between health care facilities in Muskegon, Oceana, Mason, Newaygo and Ottawa counties. Our Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulances are outfitted with cardiac monitoring equipment, defibrillators and approximately 30 medications that can stabilize life-threatening conditions. ALS ambulances are staffed 24 hours a day with experienced and caring paramedics who deliver patient care under physician-approved medical protocols. They also can communicate directly with emergency department physicians while at the patient's side. In most cases, patients are stabilized at the scene and then transported safely to the hospital.
