TDH Emergency Medical Services Ambulance Assistance Program

Under this EMS Ambulance Assistance program, the state of Tennessee through the Tennessee Department of Health (TDH) has allocated Coronavirus Relief Funds to cover all licensed ambulances owned and operated in the state of Tennessee. These ambulances are eligible to receive reimbursements for the initial costs of installing UV light systems in accordance with the State’s mandate around disinfection and sanitization. The costs of up to $575 will be eligible if they were incurred within the period of March 1, 2020 through December 30, 2020. For EMS providers interested in receiving reimbursement payments, the contracts for UV light installation should include language that indicates delivery and installation by December 30, 2020.

Recipients may request funds only on a reimbursement basis. Supporting documentation must be provided to substantiate all funds requested. Additionally, no RFF’s submitted after December 8 will be reimbursed, but RFFs submitted before December 8 that include documentation showing that required equipment has been ordered and contract terms and condition require delivery and installation before December 30, 2020, and if the RFF is approved, disbursement of those funds will only occur after documentation is obtained showing the actual expenditures have been made prior to December 30, 2020.
