Ground Ambulance Transports Get a Lift
The Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) of 2008 amends the Social Security Act §1834(l)(13) and provides an increase in payment for ambulance ground transports.
Effective for claims with dates of service on or after July 1, 2008, and before Jan. 1, 2010, ambulance fee schedule amounts for covered ground ambulance transports which originate in a rural area increase by 3 percent, and covered ground ambulance transports which originate in a non-rural area increase by 2 percent.
