Are you a resident transport?

If you are a resident of Incorporated Glenview or the Glenbrook Fire Protection District, the EMS Transport Billing program will have no financial impact on you. The Village will bill your private insurance company, Medicare or Medicaid and accept whatever it receives as “payment in full.” If you do not have any type of insurance, you will not be billed.

Are you a non-resident transport?

If you are not a Glenview resident, the Village will bill your private insurance company, Medicare or Medicaid. You will be charged your co-pay and/or deductible, as well as any portion of the bill not covered by private insurance.  If you are unable to pay, you may be eligible for the Village’s Hardship Waiver Program. Contact Fire Administration to discuss your options.

Need a report?

If you work for an attorney’s office, you may fax your request with a valid medical release form to (847) 724-2174.  Fire Administration will process your request in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act.
