City council renewed Yukon’s contract with Pafford EMS as its ambulance provider. The renewed contract includes a $2 monthly increase for Utility customers who choose to participate in the membership. This is the first time since the program started in 2017 that the membership price has increased.
Because of the adjustment, Yukon residents have the option to change their current OPT IN or OPT OUT participation in the membership. Customers who opt into the membership will be charged $5.65 per month, starting with the December Utility Bill. If you are currently enrolled in the membership and wish to continue at the new rate, no action is required.
For residents who would like to change their membership status, they may opt in or out by Wednesday, November 15, 2023. The membership status change goes in effect as of December 1, 2023. There will be no further opportunity to opt in or out until October 2024.
A Pafford EMS membership is not insurance, but it will help cover out of pocket medically necessary ambulance expenses, such as insurance co-pays. If you do not have a Pafford ambulance membership and receive Pafford ambulance services, you will be financially responsible for billed charges. All citizens who require medically necessary ambulance services within the Yukon city limits will always be transported regardless of ability to pay.
To opt in or out, simply fill out a Pafford Ambulance Membership form, and return it to the City of Yukon Utility Billing Department. The form is also available in the October and November utility bill inserts.
If you have any questions or concerns about the ambulance membership, please contact Pafford EMS at email@example.com or call 870-347-1505.
