Port Chester EMS

Port Chester - Rye - Rye Brook EMS

Port Chester - Rye - Rye Brook EMS (PCRRBEMS) is a not-for profit corporation contracted byt the three municipalities to provide emergency medical service and transportation. PCRRBEMS was founded in 1968 as a Volunteer Ambulance Corps. Over the years it has grown into a career agency employing over 45 Paramedics and EMT's. The agency responds to approximately 6,000 calls each year. PCRRBEMS staff are the true frontline members of health care in the community.

What you must know
We answer 6,000 CALLS PER YEAR, of which 4,500 require a hospital visit. We are only able to bill if the patient is transported to the hospital. Therefore we are not remunerated for about 1,500 calls.
Since we are not a municipal agency, the MAJORITY OF OUR FUNDS DERIVE FROM BILLING THE PATIENT'S INSURANCE PROVIDER.

MANY OF OUR PATIENTS DO NOT HAVE INSURANCE.

Typically INSURANCE COMPANIES are very difficult to collect from and they NEVER PAY THE FULL COST.
