The Emergency Triage, Treat, and Transport (ET3) team hosted a webinar on August 8, 2019, providing an overview of the application portal. The team provided guidance for ambulance suppliers and providers to submit a completed application to participate in the Model. Under this voluntary payment model which is scheduled to launch in 2020, ambulance providers will be paid by Medicare for transport not only to emergency departments but also to alternative lower-cost sites, such as urgent care centers or primary care providers.
For more information about the model, please visit the ET3 Model website.
