Membership Program

 

The Woodville Township Trustees would like to clarify a recent postcard that was sent by North Central EMS to all residents regarding their “membership program.” The benefits of the membership program include coverage for head of the household, spouse, and dependent children who reside in the Village of Woodville and Woodville Township.

North Central EMS (LS91) has been in Woodville for the past 17 years and provides excellent service to our residents. Unfortunately the yearly contract for this service doubled this year. The residents were generous enough to support a 4.0 mill replacement levy to cover this increase and keep the current 24/7 EMS service.

In light of the successful passage of the increased levy in November, 2012, the Woodville Township Trustees negotiated into the new EMS contract a FREE membership in North Central’s membership program, effective April 1, 2013. Since tax-payers are paying for EMS services, the Trustees did not want them to have to pay any out-of-pocket charges for using the service.

North Central has always offered an optional membership program at a cost of $49 per year that would cover the costs (the deductible that insurance companies would not pay), but now this fee is waived and every resident in Woodville and Woodville Township is automatically a member at no additional cost.

Services covered under the membership include emergency ground ambulance services to a medical facility, and medically necessary, non-emergent ambulance transports to medical facilities in their service area. Membership does not cover transportation to, nor from, a physician’s office, wheelchair van services, or any other non-approved destination as defined in the Medicare guidelines.

North Central will bill any insurance, and accept their payment as PAYMENT-IN-FULL. If you do receive a bill from North Central, please call them at 1-800-589-2515 to explain that you are in the membership program for Woodville Township.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to call any of the Township Trustees, the Township Fiscal Officer, Lori Kepus, at 419-849-2492.
