1. Medical assistance coverage must include reimbursement of ambulance services for responding to calls to assist covered individuals which do not result in transport.
2. For purposes of classifying ambulance services under this section:
a. An emergency response is one that at the time the ambulance is called the ambulance responds immediately. An immediate response is one in which the ambulance begins as quickly as possible to take the steps necessary to respond to the call.
b. An advanced life support assessment is an assessment performed by an advanced life support crew as part of an emergency response that was necessary because the patient's reported condition at the time of the dispatch was such that only an advanced life support crew was qualified to perform the assessment. An advanced life support assessment does not necessarily result in a determination that the patient requires an advanced life support level of service.
