Annual Subscription Program


Online payment option available 


When you dial 9-1-1 for a medical emergency, the Cheltenham Township Emergency Medical Service (EMS) answers your call. Our highly trained staff uses state-of-the-art equipment to provide aid that save lives. During 2021, EMS expects to respond to over 3,000 calls for help, but just once a year we ask for your assistance to help us continue providing top-notch care in the face of rising heath care costs. 


By becoming a subscriber, you can support EMS and eliminate unnecessary expenses, such as deductibles and co-pay obligations for you and your family. While EMS does not provide transportation for routine medical or doctor’s visits, your subscription will save you money on any emergency calls your family might need in 2021. The average emergency ambulance call costs as much as $1,600. However, EMS will bill Medicare and insurance companies to keep your costs down. You may view our 2021 mailing here 2021 Subscription Letter.

You may join the subscription program at any time during the year, but you will only be covered until 12/31/2021

Our 2021 subscription rates are:
  • $60 for a family
  • 40 for an individual
  • $25 for one senior (age 65 or over)
  • $50 for a senior couple

We also gratefully appreciate your tax-deductible contributions, which can be included on your 2021 Subscription Card.  When completing your card, please include all persons living in your home since only listed residents will be covered by your subscription. Please sign your card to authorize billing by EMS in the event our services are needed. We thank you for your support over the past 37 years.
