American Ambulance Charge me $1000.00 to transport me from my home to the hospital about 12 miles Fresno California
I called 911 and requested an ambulance to transport me from my home to the Kaiser Hospital in Fresno, Ca. For this service I was charged a base rate amount of $802.00 and a mileage fee of $198.00, for a total fee of $1000.00 The travel time for the trip to the hospital was approximately 20 minutes and the distance from my home to the hospital was approximately 12 miles.
I realize that this kind of service may not have many customers and there would be quite a lot of standby time involved, but it would appear that the amount of $1000.00 that I was charged is exorbitant as it would be enough to pay for the 2 individual salaries and the cost of the vehicle and equipment for a period of at least two 8 hour days. I believe I was ripped off.
