It’s that time of year again. Time to enroll…in the 2019-2020 Subscription Plan offered by White Sulphur Springs Emergency Medical Services, Inc. Subscription Plan members are eligible for emergency ambulance service to either Greenbrier Valley Medical Center or Lewis Gale Alleghany Regional Hospital, as conditions or circumstances permit. (Only emergency transportation is covered under this plan. Transportation to doctor appointments, scheduled admission, return transfers or inter facility transfers are not considered emergencies and are not covered under the plan.) A subscriber may use these services as many times necessary during the coverage period. If a Subscription Plan member has private insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, these sources will be billed, however, under the Subscription Plan, the individual subscriber is not liable for any remaining balance.
The average cost of a transport to the emergency room is around $1000. Your tax deductible donation not only supports your local EMS agency but also prevents the Plan member from paying charges incurred by a transport to the emergency room. Funds raised through the subscription plan are used to offset the ever rising cost of supplies and equipment necessary to provide the high level of emergency medical care to the sick and injured. Please help White Sulphur Springs EMS by subscribing to this plan. All donations above the cost of the plan are tax deductible and greatly appreciated.
Established in 1959 as White Sulphur Springs Rescue Squad and operating now as White Sulphur Springs Emergency Medical Services, Inc., we have always proudly served the citizens of White Sulphur Springs, Harts Run and Caldwell and recently added the areas of Renick, Frankford, Anthony, Spring Creek, and Maxwelton to our service area. Currently, White Sulphur Springs EMS operates two stations (one in White Sulphur Springs and the other in the Frankford District), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year with full time Paramedics, EMT’s, and Drivers. We are equipped with eleven Advanced Life Support ambulances. In order to continue to provide the best care available and to meet the ever changing demands of the State and our community, we need your help. The expensive of operating and maintaining equipment, ambulances, and continued training of our certified staff is costly; we call on you to assist us by participating in our annual Subscription Plan. Please help us so that we can continue to help you.
