Warrick County EMS is now charging people who call for an ambulance then refuse service.
Warrick County EMS is now charging people who call for an ambulance then refuse service.

It's a $100 fee to receive minor treatment such as a check for vital signs. It's $400 if someone receives a more extensive form of treatment  but refuses a trip to the hospital.

Warrick County EMS says the fees are the same as other counties.

"This year with the cost of fuel and the cost of maintenance of the trucks and just getting out and making the run," said Warrick County EMS Supervisor Tony O'Neal. "We need to start looking at trying to recoup some costs there."

Warrick County EMS says this is not a blanket rule. Charges will be handled on a case by case basis.
