The King County EMS Levy funds Paramedic or "Medic One" services throughout King County and these are provided at no cost to patients of the Bellevue Fire Department.
Patients who require transport to a medical facility, but not the services of a "Medic," will be charged a fee of $638 plus $15 per mile transported. The fee, approved by the City Council in December 2011, is designed to ensure that all patients receive high quality care without discrimination toward those with no or inadequate means to pay.
