Enrollment Open for Ambulance Program

Sunstar Ambulance | Pinellas County | FirstCare

The program is aimed at reducing, or eliminating, the cost of an ambulance ride for members.

PINELLAS COUNTY – Enrollment is open for the Sunstar FirstCare ambulance program, which helps with out-of-pocket expenses associated with ambulance transport.

Coverage will start Jan. 1.

The Sunstar FirstCare Ambulance Membership Program is not an insurance plan. It is a Pinellas County government program that works with an individual’s insurance company to cover 100 percent of eligible expenses associated with deductibles and co-payments. The membership plan will also cover 50 percent of  the cost for any trips denied by the insurance company. It is estimated that the average cost of a single transport is $707. Annual membership fees are $63 for an individual and $98 for a family.

If plan members are uninsured, they receive a 20 percent discount on ambulance transportation services. This is an average savings of $140 per transport.

The family plan covers those related by blood, marriage or adoption who live in the same household.

For information, call (727) 582-2008 or go to pinellascounty.org.
