Why does the Plano Fire Department charge an ambulance transport fee to tax-paying citizens?
When transporting patients in the ambulance, the Plano Fire Department charges $600 for residents of Plano and $700 for non-residents plus $10 per mile from the emergency scene to the medical facility. The patient's medical insurance will usually pay this fee which is set in accordance with national ambulance standards. If the Plano Fire Department did not charge this fee, this operating cost would have to be funded entirely with tax revenue, resulting in greater taxes for all citizens.
