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 holder’s 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 LVAC’s 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.
