Starting Monday, thousands of people in the Tulsa metro area can enroll in EMSAcare, which will cover your expenses if you need to be rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.
EMSAcare costs $5.45 a month. If you get a water bill - it will show up on that. If you don't, for example - you rent, your landlord is required to inform if you're covered by EMSAcare. If not, you can elect to pay for it yourself, even if you're in an apartment complex.
EMSA says the program will cover all expenses for the ambulance trip that originates from Tulsa, Bixby, Sand Springs, Jenks and Oklahoma City. It doesn't matter if you have insurance or not.
And it doesn't matter if you're transported from your home address or not. The City of Tulsa notes it covers all permanent members of households that participate.
Tulsa utility customers also can opt out of the program if they wish in August.
