In June of 2017, The Board of Directors of Monarch Fire Protection District enacted a billing policy for ambulance transport services.

Residents of the district provide financial support through the payment of annual taxes. Accordingly, when a resident receives ambulance transport services, the District shall collect only that amount of money which is reasonable and customary under the resident’s insurance policy. The resident shall not have an obligation, such as a co-payment or deductible, to the District because such payments are considered paid in full through the remuneration of their taxes.

Non-Residents have not paid any local taxes to Monarch Fire Protection District. Therefore, non-residents who receive ambulance transport services shall be assessed the same reasonable and customary fee for services and be obligated to pay the full amount of the fee including, but not limited to, the amount otherwise covered by an applicable insurance coverage and co-payment or deductible.

Individuals who have received ambulance transport services by a Monarch Fire Protection District ambulance and did not supply adequate health insurance information at the time of care, will receive an inquiry from the district’s third party billing administrator, Mediclaims, on behalf of Monarch Fire Protection District. The patient or patient’s legal representative will be requested to fill out the missing information and return it to:

Monarch Fire Protection District
C/O Mediclaims
PO Box 468
Tonkawa, OK 74653

Or

Monarch Fire Protection District
13725 Olive Blvd.
Chesterfield, MO. 63017
