Legislation

The Minnesota Ambulance Association has worked diligently to achieve many legislative and regulatory wins for the industry over the previous years. Thanks to MAA board, legislative committee and members alike, we were able to accomplish many of our goals to improve payment working directly with payers and continue to work on overall regulatory issues. Also, the MAA will continue to promote and lobby legislation that supports the viability of ambulance operations of all sizes and business structure.

Looking ahead to the 2020 session we will focus on:

  • Better up-front payment of Emergency Ambulance Calls for high deductible health plans
  • Work on prior-authorization issues for ambulance providers
  • Work on increasing funding for volunteer ambulance services training
  • Work on legislative issues around blood borne pathogens mandated blood draws
  • Support the integrity of the ambulance licensing law

 

 

 

The Ambulance Association holds monthly legislative committee meetings for our members.
