Anaheim Fire & Rescue currently offers a FireMedics Program to residents and businesses within the city of Anaheim. The voluntary program is designed to assist the community members of Anaheim in the event of an emergency by waiving the costs of emergency medical services and ambulance transportation not covered by medical insurance. Payments made by insurance will be accepted as payment in full.
Should you need emergency medical services, a response fee of $439 will be charged per call. If additional services are needed, such as ambulance transportation, total costs could be upwards of $3,000 per person. As an alternative to paying these costs, the FireMedics Program allows residents and business owners the option of paying $5 per month ($60 per year) to cover any deductible or copayment the patient may otherwise incur. This ensures no out-of-pocket expenses to members. Membership provides coverage for an unlimited number of calls.
For a residential account, membership covers remaining response and transportation expenses for everyone who resides in your home, anywhere in the city of Anaheim. The program also covers visitors if they have a medical emergency while at your home.
For a business account, membership covers remaining response and transportation expenses for all employees if an emergency occurs while working at the enrolled business address. Customers of the business are not covered by the program, but their individual residential membership may cover them if they reside in the city of Anaheim.
