I also was taken to the hospital by TRAA. I also had the $59 membership. My bill was over $2,000. They allowed me to make payments, assuring me that I would never have to pay interest. This year in November or December I was taken to the hospital. I received my bill, and guess what? I was charged interest. Really,
interest on an ambulance bill? Even though I have never missed a payment.
What I don’t understand is that for many years the Fort Wayne Police manned the ambulances and did an excellent job. Never was there a charge. So why is the ambulance service of TRAA charging so much, and why are they allowed to charge interest?
I think it is a shame to do this to us poor old people who need help. I understand it is necessary to pay people who man the station and do the job. But the police did it for free.
Do you think it’s time to rethink giving TRAA the contract and think about the Fort Wayne Police who are already on the street?
