GVA is primarily supported by third party billing for ambulance transports.
Third party means we contract with
PAB (Professional Ambulance Billing)
to prepare bills,
contact medical insurance companies,
answer inquiries regarding the account status and originate related correspondence.
For billing questions, call PAB at 1-716-204-3350 or 1-888-897-4893.
- GVA bills for services when a patient is transported.
- We gratefully accept donations or memorials.
Memorial plaques are exhibited in our meeting room.
We conduct an annual fund drive,
soliciting contributions from residents of our primary response district.
- We receive no funds from any level of government
or fire department, except for an occasional grant for a specified purpose.
- GVA's major expense and the reason why transport charges might seem high
is the cost of having crews and equipment available at all times.
It costs a little over a million dollars a year to operate GVA.
This includes the payroll and the purchase of an ambulance for about $120,000 as needed.
