Board’s Request for EmCare Representative to Address the Board  I/D/A

Regarding Non-Participating Provider Billing

At the October 27, 2011 meeting, the Board requested validation from

Emcare that Blue Cross/Blue Shield negotiations were successful.

I met with Emcare representatives Steve Schaerrer, Emcare Client Administrator & Yolanda Marrs on 3/21/12. The contracting issue was discussed and Mr. Schaerrer mentioned the hold-up is due to the Flower Valley Physicians needing to obtain a fictitious business name in order to complete contracting with Blue Cross.
