Washington County EMS Director Kevin Deramus credits a new billing company for the first increase in revenue for the service in three years.
Deramus reported to the Washington County Commissioners at today’s (Tuesday’s) meeting that the EMS brought in $1.9 million in revenues, in good part due to the work of EMS-Medical Consultants.
Deramus says however, the EMS is not in the black, because their budget was $2.3 million. The Washington County EMS had seen declines in revenues in 2011 and 2012.
The Washington County EMS was the first emergency medical service in Texas to use EMS-MC.
