Coalition To Protect EMS

PLEASE CALL YOUR STATE SENATOR – ask them to REJECT the Governor’s amendment of SECTION 23 of H 3539.

In July the Legislature passed a supplemental budget, H 3539. Included in that bill was a measure to protect EMS services, SECTION 23.

SECTION 23:
• Eliminates direct pay to patient by insurers,
• Prevents insurers from unilaterally slashing reimbursements for emergency medical services and
• Gives communities local authority on EMS reimbursement.

When H. 3539 went to Governor Patrick, he amended it and sent back his own pro-insurer version to the Legislature. In July, the House rejected that amendment and now it awaits a vote by the Senate.

ProtectEMS.org wants the Senate to vote to REJECT Governor Patrick’s amendment of SECTION 23 of H. 3539.
