does anyone have an idea what the reason is township ems will only go to certain hospitals? even if your docs and hosp. are closer they tell u its further, or that yours is on diversion,or even they don't have an er.when you tell them #miles, call to verify no diversion,they insist on going where they want. even wishard ambulances take you where you request within reason. if you are in crisis you know where your docs are.what is this about?

It's not a taxi service. In an emergency a patient needs to be transported to the closest ER. The service is for true emergencies only and it's being abused

the closest hosp. is the one the person was asking to go to. was told they were on diversion. not true. terminal illness it is important to see your own drs. then got told another was closer. again not true they wanted to go over 20 miles away the pt. requested a hosp. less than 7 miles away. they will not take you to st. francis. it was not on diversion we called and it is closer. this was a true emergency.I am simply asking why the township ems only want to go to certain hosp. wishard ambulances are very good at taking you to st. francis or where you wish to go. dying peopledeserve better

They will usually transport you to the hospital you request. If you are very ill they are taking you to the nearest hospital. And no, they are not a taxi service.

they have their own preferences. unless its a private service or wishard they will drive further to Methodist or wishard. from 465 and Rockville wishard or Methodist is not closer than westview or even Hendricks county. the fees are the same, at least a taxi will take you where you ask. its close to 1600 for a few miles. its about contracts and u and p charges

Most of the frequent fliers aren't paying these bills anyway so they don't care of the cost. Why take an expensive taxi when you can get a free service?
