LVAC rig 67B2 was partially funded
by a gift from AP Farm in Cross River.
Lewisboro VAC was founded
in 1977 and was funded exclusively from the generous donations
of our residents and friends. Although, we are not supported
financially by any town, state or government agency, Lewisboro
Volunteer Ambulance Corps is joining other local volunteer ambulance
corps units in our area (Chappaqua, Katonah- Bedford Hills, Somers
and others) in seeking reimbursement from Medicaid, Medicare,
and private insurance companies for emergency ambulance transport
service. Reimbursement is claimed only if a patient is actually
transported to the hospital at the rate covered by the policy
holders Medicaid, Medicare or their private insurance.
Importantly, no one will be denied emergency medical transport
because of lack of insurance.
These funds will be reinvested
into equipment, training and other increasingly costly supplies
needed to deliver high quality emergency services. The continued
pressures on LVACs current operating budget, especially
following the acquisition of major capital projects including
a new Ambulance, electronic power cots and automated CPR devices,
requires that we take this action. While this initiative will
help offset a portion of our costs, LVAC is still dependent on
contributions from our friends and neighbors through our letters
of appeal and community fund raisers.
LVAC gratefully acknowledges
the outstanding support received from the community since its
founding. However, with the costs of maintaining a state of the
art pre-hospital medical emergency response team with the cost
of advanced life-saving equipment increasing each year LVAC believes
it has a management responsibility to lay the groundwork now
for a sustainable and secure future serving the emergency medical
needs of the community.
