The Compassionate Billing Policy includes:
Insured patients, who are residents of King George County, are not responsible for any ambulance transport service fees not paid by their insurance carrier or carriers. All other patients are responsible for ambulance transport service fees not paid by their insurance carrier or carriers unless otherwise waived as provided in the Compassionate Billing Policy.
Patients are not responsible for any amount of the ambulance transport service fees adjusted by insurance carriers as a result of state or federal regulations or by agreement with King George County.
King George County’s billing company will not pursue payment recovery through a debt collection agency without the expressed authorization of the County Administrator or his designee.
It is the intent of the County to utilize the Office of Inspector General (OIG) opinion for County residents, so the out-of-pocket expense for the co-pay will not need to be paid by County residents.
Ability to pay will never be considered when providing service. When residents need emergency assistance, they should call 911 without hesitation. Also, based upon the localities we have contacted, they have all reported that there has not been a decrease in call volume and in most cases call volume has increased.
No. If you or family members are not transported, there will be no bill for services rendered. Ambulance fee for service is based on what is termed "loaded service," whereby someone is actually transported.
Staff has estimated that approximately $900,000 to $1,000,000 in revenue may be generated for the full first fiscal year.
Many automobile insurance policies and homeowners' insurance policies provide some form of coverage if the insured was injured and required transport by ambulance, per information provided to staff by several billing companies. County staff recommends that citizens review their insurance coverage to verify their limits of coverage under each policy. In speaking with the billing contractors, they routinely bill health insurance first, and then auto, and lastly any other form of insurance.
King George County contracts this service out to a private company to handle the billing process. After patient care is provided, insurance information will be obtained routinely, often at the hospital. King George County will waive co-payments and deductibles for county residents. Non-insured residents will receive an initial statement from the billing company, while insured residents will receive an explanation of benefits (EOB) from their insurance company. All patients may apply for the hardship waiver, if needed.
Yes, only County residents will have their co-payments and deductibles waived.
Unfortunately, health insurance premiums continue to rise regardless of whether or not a community decides to bill for EMS transports. Such factors as prescription-drug coverage, litigation, technology improvements in the medical field and depressed insurance company investment returns have resulted in escalating health insurance premium costs. However, ambulance transport costs represent less than 1% of health care expenditures. Many other local governments in Virginia have implemented a revenue recovery program for ambulance transport fees, and they have reported no evidence that EMS billing increases health insurance premiums.
Persons using the Emergency Medical Service are asked to provide any insurance information you have at the time of service, whenever possible. Attending to the patient’s medical needs will always be the first priority.
If your insurance information is not available at the time of service, the billing company will attempt to obtain the information at the hospital. If the information cannot be obtained, you may receive a letter asking you to provide the information. You can contact the billing office to provide the information. When the billing office receives the information, your insurance will be billed. You will not receive any further correspondence or bills until the insurance company has made a determination on your claim.
King George County will be using Medical Accounts Receivable Systems (MARS)/Ambulance Medical Billing (EMS/MC) for billing services. They can be contacted 800-814-5339 or on the website.
You can visit Ambulance Fee for Service page.
Yes, currently similar programs have been implemented within Spotsylvania, Stafford, and Charles County, Maryland. The City of Fredericksburg and Caroline County are in the planning phase of implementing this type of program.
2021 REAL PROPERTY REASSESSMENT PROCESS
Most County residents have received or will shortly receive the Real Estate Notice of Change in Assessment from the Commissioner of the Revenue. The Notice is self-explanatory, but there may be some questions.
The law requires that the Commissioner of the Revenue reassess real property (land) every four years.
The Commissioner of the Revenue uses an independent third-party to conduct the assessments.
The reassessment is the new value of your land for years 2022-2025.
That value will be used in conjunction with the real estate tax rate to determine your real estate tax bill each year.
That is why the Notice states: **THIS IS NOT A TAX BILL**
Your tax obligation will be determined once the Board of Supervisors sets the tax rate. That will be done only after public hearing(s) and ample opportunity for public input and comment at public meetings of the Board of Supervisors.
When the reassessment process is completed, the Assessor or Board of Assessors will hold hearings. At the completion of these hearings, a Board of Equalization is established to review any complaints and possibly act on them. Once the Board of Equalization has completed this review, the only option is to petition the Circuit Court in accordance Section 58.1-3984 of the Code of Virginia. Please contact the King George County Court system for guidelines to proceed with this process.
If you have questions, comments or disagree with your assessment, please follow the directions on the Notice and/or use this contact:
Neither the Commissioner nor the Board of Supervisors can alter any assessment.
Only the assessor, the Board of Equalization or a court may alter an assessment.

Latex paint is not a hazardous material, and if it is dry, can be disposed of as trash at the Sealston convenience center. Removing the lid and mixing any wet paint with sand or kitty litter will speed up the drying process.
You also don’t have to wait for a household hazardous waste day to recycle motor oil, hydraulic fluid or gear oil. All three can go into the used oil tanks at either convenience center. Used anti-freeze can also go into the used anti-freeze tanks at either center.

The state holds refunds due to delinquent personal property taxes. However, we don’t immediately receive those funds. For the Treasury to receive the funds from the state, the claim must be finalized first. The taxpayer can call our office and notify us that they would like us to finalize with the state or an automatic finalization will be done within 45 days of receiving notification of a match from the state of the taxpayer’s refund. If the taxpayer chooses to finalize or automatic finalization has occurred, the state does keep 4% of any amount being held and then we would receive those funds approximately around the 15th of the following month. Example: Finalization date: March 1st, state refund held: $100, State keeps 4%: $4.00 , Amount applied to delinquent taxes $96.00, Approximate receiving date: April 15th. If the claim with the state hasn’t been finalized, the taxpayer can pay off their balance and receive their full check from the state within 4-6 weeks.
Pay off all delinquency taxes, before automatic finalization date (see question 1 for details) and the state will mail back your refund within 4-6 weeks upon notification that the delinquent taxes have been paid in full.
The Treasurer has the authority to withhold state registrations by taxpayer’s social security number for vehicles owned, or co-owned (cosigned), until all delinquent personal property taxes are paid in full by the owner or co-owner(cosigned). In addition, an administrative fee in the amount of $20.00, and a DMV Stop fee in the amount of $30.00, will be imposed to cover the cost of this enforcement action. Once we are notified of all delinquent personal property taxes and DMV fees are paid, the stop will be released by the end of the business day. If we aren’t notified of the payment, the stop will be released on the following business days report. Once the stop is removed, the taxpayer is eligible to register vehicle immediately.
