Kentucky Department of Workers’ Claims ambulance reimbursement rates contained in their next Fee Schedule for Physicians will increase by more than 11%.
The Kentucky Ambulance Providers Association met this afternoon with Kentucky Department of Workers’ Claims Commissioner Dwight Lovan at the department’s offices in Frankfort. Attending that meeting were KAPA President Thomas Adams and KAPA Secretary John Hultgren.
Commissioner Lovan said that the new fee schedule is not in the formal regulatory process yet and that it should take about one more month to finalize the schedule. The proposed regulation will then require a public hearing.
The Kentucky Workers’ Claims fee schedule for ambulance service is benchmarked against CMS and reimbursements will be increased from 130% of CMS to 145% of CMS.
