2021 Subscription Drive Underway


Tri-Community South EMS, the municipally owned and operated ambulance service for Bethel Park, South Park and Upper St. Clair, is holding its annual subscription drive. Tri-Community South EMS responded to over 7,100 emergency calls last year—an average of over 500 calls per month! Your $60 Individual Subscription or $70 Household Subscription helps to ensure quality ambulance service to its residents. Please help to support this valuable community resource by subscribing in 2021!

Subscriptions are being mailed to every known occupied residence in Bethel Park, South Park and Upper St. Clair the last week of October, 2020. If you do not receive a mailing by November 15, please call Tri-Community South EMS at 412-831-3710, Ext. 501. If you are not sure if you have already subscribed, please call the above number and extension. You can get a jump on the mailing, and subscribe on-line now, here.

Medical insurance can be extremely confusing. Do not assume that your insurance company covers emergency ambulance transport to a hospital at 100%. Most insurance plans do not cover at 100% of the cost. In addition, no insurance company covers costs of service for emergency treatment without a transport to an emergency room. The fee for this treatment is the responsibility of the individual.

Ambulance service is not free, and no tax dollars are used to operate Tri-Community South EMS. By subscribing either as an individual at $60 a year or household at $70 a year, you will receive a 50% discount off any out-of-pocket expenses related to emergency ambulance service provided by Tri-Community South EMS. And, since most insurance companies do not provide coverage for on-scene treatment without transport, subscribers will also receive a 50% discount.

PLEASE NOTE: Lift assists are not covered by your subscription.

You can subscribe on line here or contact our office at 412-831-3710, Ext. 501. Please visit our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/tcsems820/. If you would like a speaker for your group or organization, please contact our office at 412-831-3710, Ext. 109 or email us at tcsems@tcsems.org.
