Western Alliance Emergency Services Incorporated (WAES)
ALS & BLS Interfacility Transfers

Our ambulances also provide Non Emergency ALS & BLS inter facility patient transfers for specialized care so that in-patients at one hospital can share in the specialties of another. Our units also provide discharge transport to a rehabilitation or skilled nursing facility after treatment for a cardiac event or a major surgery, An ALS unit would consist of a Paramedic and an EMT while a BLS unit would have 2 EMTís. Not all interfacility transfers are covered by your insurance. Prior to be transported ask the sending facility if they have obtained pre-authorization from your insurance for this transport. If no, understand that you may be responsible for the cost of this transport. Most insurances do not pay for patient preference, bypassing a closer facility, or for the transportation to a different facility when the services could have been provided at the sending facility.
