During the COVID-19 public health emergency, CMS issued four waivers for ambulance services to allow for reimbursements for transporting patients to facilities other than a hospital emergency department, treatment in lieu of transport, EMS facilitation of telehealth services, and hospital at home utilizing community paramedics. In March, 2022, NAEMT conducted a survey to understand how ambulance services are utilizing these waivers. 523 respondents from 48 states participated in the survey. Respondents represented all types of providers from the full spectrum of delivery models, call volumes and number of personnel.
