Caring tradition
Bella Vista Paramedics and EMTs answer your calls when you need medical help, whether you have a big problem or a small problem. The caring tradition began in 1976 and, more than 30 years later, the most important part of the job still is taking care of you. When you need us, we’ll be there.

When to call an ambulance?


Firefighters remove the top of a car to rescue a woman.

When should you call the ambulance? If someone’s life is in danger, call 911. If you’re in doubt, call 911.
 
Bella Vista Police Dispatchers who answer your 911 calls are trained to identify emergencies and to get you the help you need.
 
Call 911 and get immediate help for the following:

  • The victim's condition threatens his or her arms, legs or life.

  • During the ride to the hospital, the victim’s condition might worsen and threaten his or her arms, legs or life.

  • Moving the victim might cause further injury?

  • Distance or traffic conditions might delay you while you try to get the victim to the hospital?

Ambulance billing and charges
You will be billed if the ambulance takes you to Northwest Medical Center Benton County or Mercy Health in Rogers. However, before billing you, if you have insurance, your claims will be filed with your insurance company including Medicare. 
 
Our Base Charge is $550 for all transports plus $10 per mile to the emergency room. You will also be charged for medications, supplies, and procedures used by the ambulance medical team.

If you have any questions regarding your billing statement, please call (479) 855-4454.

Emergency Medical Information


When you have a medical emergency or have to visit a doctor, your medical caregivers need to know:

  • What medical conditions you have.

  • What medical equipment you have and need

  • What — prescriptions or over-the-counter — medicines you are taking.

  • Who are your healthcare providers and what is their contact information.

Write your list of medications. Put it in a holder with a magnet and attach it to your refrigerator. Your list will be easy to find by the emergency responder. You can get the free holder from the Fire Station in Town Center.
