spenac Posted October 15, 2007 Share Posted October 15, 2007 In order for us to accept a transfer, a signed waiver of necessity must be signed by the MD. Spenac, I'm not dissing you or trying to play dumb but can you please clarify how we're robbing tax-payers money when we're providing a service in which no on else in Lee county can? Number 1 I have seen to many falsified Medical Necessity forms to give them any value. Number 2 I am not saying all transfers do not need an ambulance. Just from my experience and from talking talking to those that own businesses that do transfers, most of these patients do not need an ambulance. The little old lady that wants to get to an appointment in order to get meds refilled does not need an ambulance. The guy needing emergency bypass surgery but he's at a bandaid hospital and needs to get to a cardiac hospital ASAP needs an ambulance. Services and doctors that write up transfers that are not emergencys as if they were are guilty of fraud. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
