Effective July 1, 2005, Medicare Part B payment may be made to IHS independent ambulance suppliers that furnish ambulance services. IHS independent ambulance suppliers bill the designated carrier for services.

Payment for independent ambulance supplier claims shall be based on the ambulance fee schedule and processed based on point of pickup (POP). Medicare Part B deductible and coinsurance amounts are applied, but are waived by the IHS.

For more information on the ambulance fee schedule see Pub. 100-04, Medicare Claims Processing Manual, Chapter 15. See Chapter 15, §10.3 for information on POP.
