The FDNY is looking to charge more for ambulance treatment and transport services after nearly four years of the same rates.

Basic life support services will go up from $775 to $900, and calls when a paramedic responds will increase from $1,310 to $1,525, according to a filing from the city. Prices when a defibrillator is used or intubations are performed will increase from $1,420 to $1,625.


The department also proposes a “treatment in place” charge when a patient is evaluated by telemedicine. That will cost $630 for basic life support and $1,050 for advanced life support.

That service should roll out next year, the FDNY said.

Additionally, the FDNY wants to charge $15 a mile for the trip to the hospital.

A public hearing is scheduled for November 2.
