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).
