Fire Medics is a voluntary program of the Newport Beach Fire Department. Its purpose is to protect you against the unexpected costs of paramedic services and emergency ambulance transportation. All residences and business located in the incorporated area of Newport Beach are eligible for membership.
Why should you join?
You’ll save anywhere from $980 to $1500 per paramedic visit. For a fee of $48 a year, you’ll be covered for unlimited paramedic services and emergency ambulance transportation-with no out-of-pocket expenses. Membership covers anyone at the subscribing address, whether a residence or business-for example, family members, guests, customers, or employees. Non-members are billed for the full cost for paramedic assistance - up to $1500 per visit.
There’s no paperwork or bills, whether you’re insured or not. The health plans of insured individuals are billed directly. In this case, Fire Medics membership covers everything related to paramedic and emergency ambulance services not covered by insurance Call (949) 644-3383 for more information, or confirmation of your membership status.
NEW for Fire Medics Members-
Starting in January 2011:
- Our member services have changed. Be sure to review the Fire Medics brochure for the details.
- The City of Newport Beach will no longer be offering participation in the Aculert system as an added feature of the Fire Medics Program. The Newport Beach Fire Department is currently exploring newer and more technically advanced methods of retrieving your family's medical information, so that the paramedics will have immediate access to medical history at a touch of a button.
