The Office of EMS/Trauma Systems Coordination (OEMS/TS) is updating the list of potentially eligible emergency medical service providers for the FY 13 EMS Allotment/Allocation (also referred as EMS/County fund). This funding consists of EMS and Trauma Care System Account (911 funds), the Emergency Medical Services, Trauma Facilities, and Trauma Care System Fund (1131 funds) and the Designated Trauma Facility and Emergency Medical Services Fund (3588 funds).
The list of emergency medical service providers we will use to determine eligibility for FY 13 funding is available below. Please review the spreadsheet carefully for two things:
1) Is your EMS service listed as a provider in the counties where you operate?
-- If your EMS service is not listed in EACH county in which you operate, please contact our office immediately (see contact information below) so we can update the list.
2) Does our office have a contract on file for those counties outside your county of licensure, where you provide emergency medical service?
-- If you are a provider operating in a county other than your county of licensure*, our office must have a copy of the contract or letter of confirmation from that county.
The contracts we have on file are indicated in the "Contract Status" column on the attached spreadsheet. If you ONLY operate in your county of licensure, we do not need a copy of your contract.
What the terms mean in the "Contract Status” column on the attached spreadsheet:
-- An "n/a" indicates that we do not need a copy of a contract because this is your county of licensure.
-- A "yes" indicates that this county is not your county of licensure and we DO have a copy of your contract or letter of confirmation in that county.
-- A "no" indicates that this county is not your county of licensure and we DO NOT have a copy of your contract with the county. Therefore, you will NOT be considered as an eligible EMS provider in that county, unless you provide us with a copy of your contract for that county.
* Please Note: Rule 157.130 and 157.131 defines county of licensure as the county which lies within the location of the mailing address of a licensed ambulance provider, as indicated by the provider on the application for licensure that it filed with the Department.
