Are you taxpayers in favor of the TTAS in Alpena everyday at a different restaurant, store, etc. using your ambulance for recreation and transportation? Especially with no business at Alpena Regional Medical Center?

Maybe you should look into what is actually going on with TTAS before you open your mouth, or let your fingers run wild. There are legitimate reasons for TTAS to be in Alpena, and even more legitimate reasons for them not to return to Atlanta just to have to go back to Alpena in a couple hours. I have sat here and read all this crap long enough! Basically, it appears to me that there is a personal vendetta going on here. Did Mr. Albrecht piss in your Wheaties or just what exactly did he do to you? People need to learn to seperate business life from personal life. TTAS has been, up until a few months ago, doing the job that no other ambulance service wants to do. Transfers! If you need urgent medical attention in Saginaw, do you want to wait 2 hrs for medical transport to arrive in Alpena to take you? I think not! Here is another one. If you need to go to dialysis, and cannot for whatever reason get yourself there, is there an ambulance in Alpena that is gonna help you 2-3 times a week? Dont know of any! TTAS is there to help people, not hurt them. I really hope that no-one has to die for this political b/s to come to an end, cause if that happens, someone is gonna become very rich and it wont be at the expense of TTAS. It will be at the expense of the people who are trying to fulfill a personal vendetta against 1 person at the expense of the public who truely need the services that TTAS provides. Grow up people! Oh yeah, I almost fogot. Wow, do you work at ARMC, TTAS or a competing ambulance service? You seem to have allot of inside information.

ttas for your info, isn't the do gooders you are trying to portray. They are in it strictly for the money! Not everyone is against dan as you portray, but we are aware of there intentions $$$$$$$. Please don't try to make them out to be the only ones who want to help people. ttas is trying to prove a point, and they themselves have brought this on, no one else. Point the finger anywhere you want but it is there miss deeds that has caused this,no one elses. News Flash no one could give a rats butt about dan albrecht or ttas, they are a bunch of $$$$$ hungry idiots who cry, whine and lawyer up when they don't get there own way. Then people stick up for them who don't have a clue to all the illegal crimes they have commited. So if you must show your support at least be aware you are supporting criminals.

TTAS doesnt belong in Alpena, nor anywhere in Michigan. The company is a joke, especailly Dan. Now that they dont do transfers out of Alpena anymore, maybe they should stay home where their community pays for them to be.
so true

Wow, you wouldn't happen to be a former employee of Tri-Township would you? Your anti-Dan diatribe sounds very familiar.
Rumor has it? Are we in junior high school where rumor is the absolute truth?
I heard a rumor too. Rumor has it that there are a few people directly responsible for the problems at Tri that are getting ready to have a "come to Jesus" moment.

Nice to know that our tax dollars pay for them to sit on their butts waiting for a transfer in a county that doesnt pay the millage. But then again with the people who work at Tri, I'd rather they are out of the county instead of being here when I need them. Give me another $8,000 ambulance ride, never again.

I took a person to the ambulance barn after that person was wacked in the temple hard enough for an instant bruise and asked that they just check their eyes to make sure they didn't have a concussion. The person on duty shined a flashlight in his eyes, took his blood pressure and said your fine and then I got a bill for $500 bucks. Should have taken him to the er myself......

Why dont you attens a meeting and ask these questions?

I am sure they would like to hear what you have to say, I'm sure they are still reding this site, and probably commenting as well.

I suggest that the Dan bashing, and tr bashing not be used in the meeting because you will probably be asked to leave, if not escorted off the property.

would it work

I dont think the board will listen to anything,they have the right to see this..It is to bad that Tri is getting a bad rap because of one person ego. They do have good careing people that works there and they don't do the billing.

Just thinking out loud,
I don't think that you are thinking at all. I can guarantee that there are details that you are leaving out.
The first thing that you left out is that the hospital would have been contacted and advised of the persons condition and the doctor at the ER would have to give the EMS crew the "OK" to release the patient.
The second thing is that the patient would have had to sign a release of liability form before being released.
The third and most important thing is that while a bill may be for any amount that does not mear that is what you will pay. There are wright-offs and insurance allowances that will adjust the amount payed.
The way it works is the insurance companies pay a percentage of a bill up to a certain amount. In order to maximize returns you have to bill over and above what the insurance will pay. For instance, if the insurance company will pay 80% up to $80 then you have to bill $100 in order to collect $80. So while your bill may be high the amount paid is not reflected. most companies in northern michigan "write-off" what the insurance doesn't pay. I know Tri-township does because they have transported members of my family. Talk to their billing department.
