City, county come to terms on EMS pact


Somerset —

“Hopefully we can work on issues like getting reimbursed for the runs for Medicare and Medicaid and (Veterans’ Affairs),” said Girdler. 
City officials had stated that EMS had been receiving less and less for Medicaid, Medicare and VA runs, leading to the budget issues. 
The remaining step in the pursuit of a new agreement will take place at the next fiscal court meeting, when the magistrates revisit the new agreement through the second reading of the occupational tax restructuring. 
Councilor Tom Eastham was not in attendance during Monday’s meeting.
