Ambulance Services Handbook : 2. Ambulance Services : 2.2 Services/Benefits, Limitations, and Prior Authorization : 2.2.5 Types of Transport : No Transport
No Transport
Texas Medicaid does not reimburse ambulance providers for services that do not result in a transport to a facility, regardless of whether any medical care was rendered. If a client contacts an ambulance provider, but the call does not result in a transport, the provider should have the client sign an acknowledgement statement and may bill the client for services rendered.
