MetroCare Membership Program:

Today’s medical care is of a higher quality and saves more lives than ever before. But it is also increasingly expensive. Metro-Area Ambulance Service (MAAS) hopes you will never hesitate to call 911 because you are worried about an ambulance bill. That’s why MAAS offers affordable, easy-to-apply-for family memberships. MAAS is committed to serving you and your family. MAAS has only one mission: to be there with top-quality medical help when you and your family most need it. 

The MetroCare Membership program is an official program of MAAS which offsets the cost of emergency medical responses. Without the Membership Program, one emergency call can cost you hundreds of dollars. Annual membership provides for the prepayment of co-payments and deductibles for medically necessary ambulance services for which the patient has financial responsibility. MetroCare Membership also provides for a reduced fee for nonemergency transportation that is not covered by insurance. MetroCare Membership is not an insurance policy or supplement.
