What is the RBP?
WPCATA’s Resident Benefit Program (RBP) helps fund a higher level of ambulance service for the community and provides you with valuable benefits. If you’re transported by LifeNet within the WPCATA service area, LifeNet will bill your insurance, Medicare or Medicaid provider and accept their payment as payment-in-full. If your insurance provider denies a LifeNet claim, or you don’t have coverage, you’ll be charged a reduced fee (40% off standard rates) for service.
Who is covered?
All residents of participating households, regardless of their age or whether they are a blood relative of the utility account holder, receive benefits. Persons must live at the participating household address to be covered. Coverage only includes transport provided directly by a LifeNet ambulance. If you need transport outside of the service area, you may be responsible for out-of-pocket charges from another EMS service.
What is covered?
The program covers medically necessary transports to a hospital emergency room. It does not provide benefits for non- emergency transports without a physician certification statement (PCS), or repetitive transports for services such as dialysis, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. The program does not cover non-emergency transports to and from a doctor’s office, a dentist‘s office, a physical therapy center, or other non-hospital facilities. Transports originating outside of the WPCATA service area are also not included.
What is the Cost?
The program is available for $5 per month.
