Why is my insurance plan billed?
The City of La Habra’s FireMed Subscription Program is not an insurance company - we are a provider of services. In order to provide the current level of emergency service to the community we must attempt to recover the costs associated with the treatment and transportation. Through the monies collected by means of treatment and transportation charges, and membership fees, the current system of pre-hospital emergency services in our community is enhanced. The monies collected from membership and insurance allow us to have a better emergency medical services system and a healthier community.
