Billing Information

I am a resident of Orangetown or I am a business owner in Orangetown who pays town taxes. Why am I receiving a “Statement” requesting insurance information after the South Orangetown Ambulance Corps transported me, a family member, or one of my employees to the hospital?


The South Orangetown Ambulance Corps is a 501(C)(3) Not for Profit Corporation that since 1957 has contracted with the Town of Orangetown to provide 24x7, 365 Emergency Medical Services to the residents, businesses, and guests to the South Orangetown Ambulance District. The Town Board in 1999 directed the Corps to obtain insurance information for the clients that we transport for the purposes of recouping/reducing the yearly operating expenses of the Corps and thus reducing the ambulance corps budgetary line item impact on the residences and business who pay taxes in the ambulance corps district.
