Why does JCC have a revenue recovery program?
Medicaid, Medicare and the majority of private insurance policies include the cost of ambulance transport. As the need for additional emergency responders increases, local governments have sought ways to pay for these services without raising property taxes. Many other local governments in Virginia have found that billing Medicaid, Medicare and private insurance for ambulance transport service has resulted in a large amount of revenue being recovered to help fund Fire/EMS services. The availability of such revenues led JCC to join the many other cities, counties and towns in Virginia which currently have such a system.
