    Aren’t they already being paid by the taxpayers?

      I believe so, which is why many states outlaw this type of billing as it’s considered double-dipping.

    The article states that when a fire department sends out their AMBULANCE, they can’t bill for that trip. I understand that they can’t charge when a fire truck goes out. They just want to level the playing field as volunteer & private ambulances can charge the patient’s health insurance for the cost of the trip, but the fire department can’t. I don’t know if fire dept. ambulances are taxpayer funded or not.
