City Council Regular Meeting
Meeting Date: 07/12/2022  

BACKGROUND
In August of 2012, the EMS department was contacted by the Alamo Heights Fire Department regarding EMS Billing. Alamo Heights Fire Department provides EMS transport services for their City as well as the cities of Terrell Hills and Olmos Park. The City entered into a five-year agreement with the City of Alamo Heights to provide Billing Services and was renewed again on October 1, 2017.  

This agreement expires on September 30, 2022. The EMS Department has been successful in providing Alamo Heights with Billing Services and there is interest by both city staff in continuing to provide billing services to the City of Alamo Heights.
GOAL
To provide EMS billing services to the City of Alamo Heights.  This agreement  will automatically renew after the initial one-year term for a total of three years expiring on September 30, 2025.  
COMMUNITY BENEFIT
Providing EMS billing services will provide EMS with some additional revenue to allow continued services for the cities we serve.  
SUMMARY OF RECOMMENDED ACTION
Staff recommends City Council authorize the City Manager to enter into an inter-local agreement with the City of Alamo Heights for the provision of EMS Billing Services.
FISCAL IMPACT
Based upon historical collections for Alamo Heights, this fiscal impact would equate to approximately $25,000 annually. Being compensated on a percentage of collections provides an incentive to our billing staff as the more dollars we collect for Alamo Heights, the higher our compensation.

This billing fee would be collected every month based upon the collections of that month and is a source of additional revenue for the EMS Department.
RECOMMENDATION
Staff recommends approval of Resolution No. 22-R-72
