A rate hike extension has been approved for EMSA ambulance rides.

Tulsa City Councilors voted to charge $1300 to private insurers. This will not affect customers covered by Medicaid, Medicare or the city’s Total Care program.

The rate hike has been delayed since an audit of the agency found lavish spending on unwarranted items for employees.

EMSA told councilors it must charge an extra $800 for ambulance ride to make up for the loss it takes from individuals who are uninsured or covered by Medicare or Medicaid.
