NORWICH – With increased responsibility placed on the Norwich Fire Department due to Superior Ambulance cutting back its service in the area, the department could soon be changing its billing practices to make runs more economically feasible.
Police and acting Fire Chief Joseph Angelino told the finance and personnel committee Tuesday that he had been evaluating the ambulance billing system for some time. “We’re always looking for ways to be more efficient and better,” he told the committee. “We have an open period to negotiate with Blue Cross Blue Shield.”
MultiMed, the company the city contracts for ambulance billing, will come to the meeting at the request of the city, but the municipality must first set up the negotiations, he said.
