2024 Annual Fee Schedule
Unlike ambulance agencies that generate revenue through voluntary contributions, which leave them deeply underfunded, MESA charges property owners a mandatory annual fee to fund its operations and ensure 24/7 readiness to respond to EMS calls.
Benefits to residents of MESA member municipalities include:
- No residual bills for EMS services if your insurance pays
- 50% off EMS bills if you do not have insurance coverage
- 50% off EMS bills if your payment applies to a deductible
The annual fee schedule is calculated based on historical EMS call volume by occupancy classification; county parcel and tax data, and individual municipal data.
Note: Insurance only covers EMS services on a per call basis and only covers about half of the total cost of service. MESA’s annual fees fund the balance of operational expenses (see MESA’s 2024 Operating Budget).
