About Us

Purpose

The Missouri Ambulance Association, (MAA) exists to serve Missouri Emergency Medical Services. MAA consists of a diversified, yet unified, group of providers including: ambulance districts; private owners; hospital based; air ambulance, and fire districts. We have commercial memberships who wholly support MAA to include, insurance companies, medical supplies, billing services, and ambulance manufacturers. We currently have 125 medical providers and 12 commercial vendors whom are members of MAA.

MAA provides a needed resource for networking. Our members openly and freely discuss improvements and effectively dealing with issues in EMS.

MAA is active in EMS legislation. Brent Hemphill and Associates is our lobbyist. Frank Foster, Esq. is the organization’s legal professional. These two professionals have proven to be invaluable.

Accomplishments

Additional Ambulance Service Funding
FRA: MAA was instrumental in instituting the reimbursement method which should bring in an estimated 10 million dollars for our industry.
Medicare Reimbursement: MAA has remained very active in lobbying to retain current levels of Medicare reimbursement.

‚ÄčLeadership

MAA is the lead association in developing the Just Culture for EMS product and the first to partner with a Patient Safety Organization in an effort to quantify and mitigate error rates and risks to crews and patients. 
MAA also led the way for required Ambulance Board Member training, which became part of EMS regulations.
