Ambulance Transport Fees are set by city ordinance and can be found under Chapter 8 of the Code of City Ordinances. The Basic Life Support (BLS) fee for medical care rendered is six hundred ninety dollars ($690); the Advance Life Support (ALS) fee for medical care rendered is seven hundred forty-five dollars ($745); the Advanced Life Support (ALS2) fee for medical care rendered is seven hundred sixty-five dollars ($765). A transportation fee of fifteen dollars ($15) per mile from the incident location to the medical facility will apply to all transports. In addition to the above, when applicable, a $50 medication administration fee and/or a one hundred dollar ($100) non-resident fee will be charged per person per incident. The patient's medical insurance will usually pay this fee which is set in accordance with national ambulance standards. If Plano Fire-Rescue did not charge this fee, this operating cost would have to be funded entirely with tax revenue, resulting in greater taxes for all citizens.
