ambulance services

DOVER, Del. (AP) - The state Senate is set to vote on one of a series of bills aimed at providing more money to politically powerful volunteer fire companies who say their ambulance services are losing money.

The bill to be voted on Thursday mandates that every individual health insurance policy or plan issued in the state after July 1 must include coverage of not less than the cost of every ambulance run and associated basic life support services provided by a volunteer ambulance company.
