Do I need to purchase a membership if I have health insurance?

What should I do if my insurance company sends me a check for payment of services provided by APTS Ambulance?
All receipients of service are required to immediately forward any and all reimbursement received to APTS Ambulance. Failure to do so will result in the immediate termination of any membership agreement and you will be held responsible for payment of all outstanding balances.
