Arkansas Ambulance Assoc. ALERT! – CALL TO ACTION

All Arkansas Licensed EMS Agencies Urged to Participate

The Arkansas Ambulance Association is issuing this Call To Action following recent developments that will lead to enhanced ambulance reimbursement in the State of Arkansas. After more than two decades of rate stagnation, the ArAA has worked with key stakeholders to craft a strategy that will bring about this vital funding for everyone.

However, the window of opportunity to secure this funding is very narrow and will require action in the current General Assembly session.

The ArAA is requesting your participation in a special conference call / GoToMeeting webinar so that we may share more information with you. We cannot stress enough how important it is to have ALL provider agencies participate in this call. Time is of the essence.

Here are two things we need from you:

*If you cannot join the online meeting, you can still dial-in for the audio, listen in portion.

We will present concise information that will help explain how this program – already benefiting other states – will work for Arkansas. As you do in your daily operations, thank you in advance for taking time to respond to this EMERGENCY request. Get ready to get excited! Help is on the way!!!!
