Paramedic Reimbursements Agreed-Upon Procedures – June 30, 2017 and 2018

Auditor of Accounts | Date Posted: Tuesday, October 30, 2018



State Auditor, R. Thomas Wagner, Jr., has released the Paramedic Reimbursements Agreed-Upon Procedures report for Fiscal Years 2017 and 2018.  The engagement was performed pursuant to Section 13 of both Senate Bill Number 295 (148th General Assembly) and House Bill Number 281 (149th General Assembly) which states, “Emergency Medical Services shall have an audit performed by the State Auditor annually to insure that reimbursement to the counties for the State share of costs was for approved Advanced Life Support Services.”

Although Paramedic units are a part of county government in Delaware, the Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS), under the Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Public Health, is responsible for the coordination of training, certification, financing, and oversight of the State’s paramedic system. OEMS provides Grant-in-Aid funds to New Castle, Kent, and Sussex Counties on a reimbursement basis of 30 percent of each county’s total operational costs for paramedic services in Fiscal Year 2017, and 24 percent in Fiscal Year 2018. The remainder is paid by the respective county government.

The full report is available on the Auditor of Account’s website, auditor.delaware.gov.

For any questions regarding the report please contact State Auditor Wagner at 302-739-5055 or r.thomas.wagner@state.de.us.
