Frederic & Maple Forest Twp. Resident Charity Care

When residents request ambulance services in Frederic and Maple Forest Township, we bill their insurance company for services rendered.  After insurance companies pay their portion, residents receive one bill for any remaining charges such as co-pays.  This bill is generated because of Medicare requirements.  Residents are encouraged to NOT pay the bill. All additional fee's will be waived by Frederic Township Fire.  Residents may receive a second notice of bill, this will not be taken to collections.  Residents do not have any additional out of pocket cost above and beyond what their medical insurance pays.  Residents that lack insurance have no out of pocket cost.

Since the beginning of Chief Pratt’s administration Frederic Township Fire Department has provided the residents of Crawford County with thousands of dollars in charity care. 

Frederic Township never bills individuals, regardless of their residency, that only want to be evaluated and not transported to the hospital.  We believe that billing anyone that does not get transported by the ambulance is an unethical practice. Any individual wanting to be evaluated by one of our health care providers will be given that opportunity at no cost.
