Participants in the Countywide ALS Intercept Agreement initially effected in 2004 have been notified that the Saratoga County EMS Council will rescind the agreement effective June 1, 2009. Originally effected to facilitate ALS Intercepts and payment between services for patient care, changes in Medicare and billing requirements have negated the effectiveness of the agreement. Participants have been advised to obtain individual agreements with each agency they intercept with. A sample agreement template based on the earlier Countywide agreement has been posted here and in the downloads section of the Council website for use by individual agencies.
