This ambulance fee schedule applies to all ambulance services, including volunteer, municipal, private, independent, institutional (i.e., hospitals and critical access hospitals, except when it is the only ambulance service within 35 miles), and skilled nursing facilities.

Section 1834 (l) also requires mandatory assignment for all ambulance services. Ambulance providers and suppliers must accept the Medicare allowed charge as payment in full and not bill or collect from the beneficiary any amount other than any unmet Part B deductible and the Part B coinsurance amounts.
