The plan calls for the 4 cites of Corinth, Crittenden, Dry Ridge and Williamstown along with the fiscal court to split the expenses and share the billing revenue all based on the number of calls in each area.
Fire Dept EMS Budget ($1,323,322.86)
Multiplied by the % of calls
Dry Ridge – (27%) =$358,142.15
County – (43%) = $570,623.32
Corinth – (1%) = $15,909.57
Crittenden – (10%) = $130,812.04
Williamstown – (19%) =$247,835.78
Each call the respective Fire Dept makes, the city receives a credit against the share amount.
This created the incentive for the cities to make runs to offset the costs of the service.
If AMR makes a run there is no cost or credit for the city.
In no way does this discourage AMR from responding when available.
3 Year Phase In
The first year (1-1-18 thru 6-30-18) would be at only 1/3 the full amount.
The second year (7-1-18 thru 6-30-19) would be 2/3 the full amount.
The third year would be at the full share amount.
This would allow the city or county time to budget for the expenses.
Both Service credits and cost share amounts would be issued quarterly so not to burden the city or county at any one particular period.
The City of Dry Ridge would continue to bill patients. This revenue is what would be used to pay the service credits to the respective cities.
Dry Ridge would burden all the administrative and medical aspects of the service as they currently do. No other burden would be placed on any other city or the county.
