Medicare Ground Ambulance Data Collection System: Starts January 1, 2020

Beginning January 1, CMS requires selected ground ambulance organizations to collect and report cost, revenue, utilization, and other information through a Ground Ambulance Data Collection System. The data will be analyzed to assess the adequacy of Medicare payment rates for ground ambulance services.

More than 2,600 randomly selected Medicare rural health ground ambulance organizations make up the initial group. Other randomly selected Medicare ground ambulance organizations will be selected each year from 2020-2024.
