Prince William County's Board of County Supervisors is considering raising the cost of an ambulance trip.
The board on Tuesday moved forward with a plan to have insurance companies pay between $400 and $700 plus $10 per mile of transport. The fee could be a revenue generator for the county.
Currently insurance companies are not billed for ambulance transport. Prince William CountyChairman Corey Stewart said insurance companies are 'getting away with not having to pay" in his county while nearby Fairfax County, Prince George's County and D.C. already charge the fees.
