The bond is continuous and remains in full force and effect from term to term, until canceled.
Who needs the Texas Medicaid Ambulance bond?
The bond is required for all newly enrolling ambulance providers. Those associated with a governmental entity are exempt. The Medicaid Ambulance bond is a condition of participation in the Medicaid program. Ambulance providers attempting to renew their Emergency Medical Services (EMS) license must also submit a Medicaid Ambulance bond for each license they are attempting to renew. A copy of the surety bond must also be attached to an application for renewal of an EMS license when submitted to DSHS.
