Ambulance billing rates increased January 15, 2022. This increase is a reflection of our actual costs to provide service as reported to GEMT, a Medicaid reimbursement program in the State of Illinois.
To offset the additional cost, residents of the City of East Peoria are not balance billed for the amount their insurance did not cover. Non-residents utilizing our service will be billed for the balance of the invoice after the insurance has been processed. This affects ambulance bills incurred after July 1, 2020.
The Fire Department uses a billing service for ambulance bills. There are no billing records at the Fire Department. Billing and payment inquiries and insurance information should go to Andres Ambulance Billing. It can be reached by phone at 847-577-8811, extension 256.
Payments should be mailed to: East Peoria Fire Department 3223 N Wilke Road Arlington Heights, IL 60004
