© 2014 Berlin Area Ambulance Assoc.


Since 1967, Berlin Area Ambulance Assoc. Inc. Has been committed to providing the highest quality ambulance service to all residents and visitors of our area.  We are a non-profit organization that does not receive any tax subsidy.  Your memberships and donations assist us with the expense of providing pre-hospital care; from purchasing life saving equipment, to ensuring trained medical personnel are always on duty to handle whatever emergencies that should arise.  Your donations help us to provide reliable quality care to our community.  With rapidly escalating costs, we need your support more than ever!


Members of Berlin Area Ambulance Assoc. Inc. are eligible for debt forgiveness or rate reduction of medical bills incurred from use of the ambulance in an emergency.  Your insurance will be billed by Berlin Area Ambulance Assoc. Inc. for services rendered; but any remaining balance not paid to the ambulance service by the insurance company will be excused.  This means that you are not liable for paying any difference between the billed amount and the insurance payout, which could be several hundred dollars.  Please note that ambulance membership does not take the place of medical insurance and you are still required to pay regular insurance premiums as dictated by your plan.  Non-members will be obligated to pay all payments, co-payments and deductibles as required by their health insurance plan.  Base emergency transport rates start at $500 plus mileage, and can quickly rise depending on what care level and treatments are required.   


Family membership is available for $43.00 per year.  A typical family membership covers a husband, wife and unmarried children under 21 years of age who reside at the same address.  Mentally challenged or physically handicapped persons, regardless of age, are included in a family membership.


Individual membership is available for $33.00.  Individual memberships may also be purchased along with a family membership to cover children over 21 years, or other family members not covered by the family membership.
