Legislation

The Minnesota Ambulance Association has worked diligently to achieve many legislative and regulatory wins for the industry over the previous years. Thanks to MAA board, legislative committee and members alike, we were able to accomplish many of our goals to improve payment working directly with payers and continue to work on overall regulatory issues. Also, the MAA will continue to promote and lobby legislation that supports the viability of ambulance operations of all sizes and business structure.

The 2021 session we will focus on:

    • EMT education reimbursement
    • PSA local control bill
    • Paramedics placing holds/mental health changes
    • EMSRB housekeeping bill
    • Price transparency bill
    • Surprise Billing
    • Medicaid reform/surcharge

The Ambulance Association holds monthly legislative committee meetings.
