General requirements for ambulance providers.

(1) Ambulances must be licensed, operated, and equipped according to federal, state, and local statutes, ordinances and regulations.
(2) Ambulances must be staffed and operated by appropriately trained and certified personnel. Personnel who provide any invasive procedure/emergency medical services for a client during an ambulance trip must be properly authorized and trained per RCW 18.73.150 and 18.73.170.
(3) The medical assistance administration (MAA) requires providers of ambulance services to document medical justification for transportation and related services billed to MAA. Documentation in the provider's client record must include adequate descriptions of the severity and complexity of the client's condition (including the circumstances that made the conditions acute and emergent) at the time of the transportation. MAA may review the client record to ensure MAA's criteria were met.
