Patients, Billing & Budget

Looking for a loved one currently being treated by EMS?

Unfortunately EMS cannot provide any information regarding any person that we're providing care for due to federal privacy laws. Included in that, we can neither provide nor confirm identity, patient condition nor hospital transport destination. We recommend contacting the three hospital systems in an attempt to locate your loved one.

Patient Care Records

A Patient Care Record is the only method to receive information about a patient or an EMS response. A PCR is not a public document, and it is only available to the patient, a legally authorized designee or someone in an official capacity with appropriate documentation and conducting an official investigation. 

Privacy is a priority in the handling of all patient information. See Notice of Privacy Practices. Learn How to Obtain a Copy of Your PCR

​Wake County EMS does not handle patient billing in-house but contracts with a third-party billing company named EMS Management & Consultants. 

If you have questions about a bill for EMS service, please call 844-239-6690.
