Ambulance transport is one of the fastest and most efficient ways to get a patient to a doctor’s office. However, Medicare does not cover ambulance transport for patients who are not in a hospital setting. This can be a big problem for people who are not in a hospital or who have other health issues that prevent them from being transported. In this article, we will discuss how you can get Medicare coverage for ambulance transport to your doctors office.
