Paramedic Subscription Program

Paramedic Subscription Program

The Sierra Madre  Paramedic Subscription Program is an official program offered by the City of Sierra Madre to help offset the cost of emergency medical responses. This annual membership program is available to residents of Sierra Madre and is designed as an alternative to paying higher direct fees for paramedic and ambulance services. One call for emergency Paramedic services can cost in excess of $2,000 and many insurance companies do not cover the full cost. As a member of the Paramedic Subscription Program, your subscription will perform similar to a secondary insurance plan, with no additional out-of-pocket cost to you.

Program Features

  • Subscribers must be a resident of the City of Sierra Madre.
  • It is not necessary to have insurance to participate in the program.
  • If you have insurance, your enrollment fee covers any deductible or co-payment.
  • Membership is valid for one year from date of payment.
