Waiting time is covered only when the beneficiary’s attending physician deems it medically necessary. Waiting time is reimbursable after the first 30 minutes. (revised 4/1/16)
If more than four hours of waiting time is required, providers must request individual consideration and provided documentation. Providers should refer to the Billing & Reimbursement for Professionals or the Billing & Reimbursement for Institutional Providers chapters of this manual, as appropriate, for instructions.
For more information like this, check out the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Medicaid Provider Manual, Ambulance chapter.
