About Ambulance Billing
The Taos County Emergency Medical Services Department recognizes that ambulance services are often needed at some of life’s most difficult times. As such, we strive to minimize the burden imposed on those receiving medical attention as well as on their families.
This page outlines why we charge for ambulance services and details ways you can work with the County to ensure that the billing process is as painless as possible. By working together, we can make sure our medical response system continues to meet citizens’ needs and expectations.
