Did they give you a reason, why they would NOT be back? Call The West Virginia Attorney Generals office and complain.

I have a friend who works at Stafford. They are a private company, not public. They can refuse service if they feel necessary. Your IP says you are from Williamson, call your PUBLIC county service that you pay taxes for, THEY can't refuse you an ambulance like a private company.
Whatever

Stafford EMS is suffering like a lot of ambulance services are now. They get paid very little from insurance companies for the services they provide. And as far as not being able to take some for doctors appointments, there are certain things that have to be met for insurances to cover them. For one, medicare doesnt cover an ambulance to go to a doctors appointment. For insurance to pay for an ambulance a person has to be bed confined. Meaning they cant get out of the bed on their own, they cant walk at all and they cant sit in a chair or wheelchair that is in motion. It doesnt matter if you are on a cane, a walker, or use a wheelchair. If you are able to ride in a wheelchair then insurances say you can ride in a moving vehicle or wheelchair van and they wont pay for an ambulance. And whats really bad is medicare wont pay for an ambulance for doctors appointments. It wont pay for a wheelchair van at all. It will pay for you to go to the ER as long as its the closest one. It will way pay to take you home. It will pay to take you to and from dialysis but it wont pay to take you to the doctor. These conditions arent the ambulance services faults. These are the rules set by medicare and all of the other insurances, welfare, umwa, etc, are following medicares lead. And an ambulance service IS NOT required to transport you in an emergency situation. All ambulance services, whether it is Stafford, Stat, Logan County Public, whoever, can refuse to do an non-emergency run. The only thing an ambulance service cant refuse to do is respond to a 911 call for an emergency, if they have an ambulance available, and they are an ambulance service that is obligated to take 911 runs. If an ambulance service is down to one ambulance thats available, then they may not be able to take someone to a doctors appointment. Stafford is obligated to Mingo County to provide 911 coverage for the Gilbert 664 phone exchange area. And if all of there ambulances are out 911 has to use the next closest ambulance. Stat just put an ambulance station on Rt 52 in Hanover a couple of months ago to answer 911 calls for that end of Wyoming County. But when all of Staffords ambulances are out, Mingo 911 will call that Stat ambulance to respond on calls in Staffords 911 area. The next closest ambulances are either from Stat in Matewan or Williamson. Logan County Public will sometimes respond if it is a dire emergency but they receive tax money to keep and provide ambulances for 911 calls in Logan County, not in Mingo County. Mingo County does run one ambulance in Williamson to answer 911 calls when all of the Stat ambulances are out in that area. But Stat has added more ambulances in Williamson and put an ambulance at the Lenore firehouse to help through the day when they have a lot of doctor appointment runs. The public needs to understand that an ambulance service can not depend on just 911 runs the way the insurances pay today. Ambulance services depend on the money they get from taking people to and from dialysis, taking people that have insurance that will pay to doctor's offices and taking transports from nursing homes and take homes and transfers from hospitals. These calls are what make the money to keep ambulances available to answer 911 calls. And in Mingo County both Stafford and Stat do these kind of runs to support there ambulance services. Both of them do nursing home calls and ambulance runs in Logan County too since there ambulance service stays busy answering 911 calls, but gets tax money to help support it, so that is why Logan County Public doesnt do many nursing home, doctors appointment or dialysis runs. Please look at the whole picture before you talk about the ambulance services. All of them do the best they can with what they got to work with.

*my mistake. I meant to stay ambulance services are not required to transport you in non-emergency situations. If it is a true emergency and they are available they are required to at least transport you to the nearest ER. They are not required to transport you if it is not an emergency and can refuse to do non emergency business with anyone.

i heard a guy in logan talking about one of the workers who took and showed pictures of a patient who was badly injured while on a call and the girl later died. that is a disgrace. i hope i never have to use ambulance service while in a state of mind that i would not know they were taking pictures of me being sick or hurt.

First off, I don't know anybody named Rod, and haven't heard of anybody being fired from stafford for any such reasons.. Second, as far as Mac Frye (MJ) goes .. He and I are friends and I have never known him to do drugs, steal, shoot up or steal!! So grow some balls and talk trash under your real name and leave my name outta your mouth and off your fucking keyboards..
