Yes, both private and government health insurance plans include provisions for EMS transportation.

Category: EMS

No. Once gathered, patient information would be forwarded to a third party billing agency contracted by the City and specializing in EMS billing. The patient’s insurance company or Medicare would be billed for the run. Recent changes in rules set by the Department of Health and Human Services enables government entities to only invoice the patient’s insurance company or Medicare, and does not require them to bill those who cannot pay or are indigent. They may also waive the coinsurance fee for their residents rather than adopt a “hard billing” policy that would result in invoicing the patient for the balance and taking a proactive collection stance.

Category: EMS

The Police Division has a Drug Take Back Box located in the Municipal Services Center. Visit the Police Division section of our website or call 614-583-5150 with questions.

No. All calls for help are answered in the same manner, regardless of insurance coverage or ability to pay.

Category: EMS

Health care costs will rise regardless of whether a community bills for EMS transports. The primary factors influencing such increases are prescription drug coverage, medical litigation, technology in medicine and depressed investment company returns. Most private insurance and Medicare policies already have provisions in place for treatment and transport by an emergency medical provider. Billing for EMS transports allows the City to recover some of its operating costs through existing insurance monies.

The Fire Division averages 2,000 EMS transports per year (residents and non-residents). Based on these numbers and the rate-of-return seen by municipalities with similar demographics, the City conservatively anticipates an annual return of $400,000.

Category: EMS

The funds raised are set aside to support fire and emergency medical services provided by the Upper Arlington Fire Division. This includes the support of facilities maintenance and upgrades and the purchase of fire and EMS equipment and vehicles when needed.

Category: EMS
  • Transport claims will be submitted to Medicaid/Medicare/private insurance as before.
  • Non-residents will receive up to three bills for any balance not paid by Medicare/Medicaid/private insurance, or the entire amount if they do not have insurance.
Category: EMS
  • Upper Arlington residents will not be billed for a transport or for any outstanding balance on a claim, even if they do not have insurance.
  • Residents may receive a letter requesting or verifying insurance information if it had not been obtained in full at the time of the EMS transport.
  • Some private insurance companies may submit payment to the patient when it should be sent to the City. If this occurs and the patient has not forwarded the check to the City, he/she will receive a letter from the City requesting reimbursement.
  • In some cases whereby an EMS transport is provided by another jurisdiction through mutual aid, the policy of that responding agency will apply, therefore Upper Arlington residents may receive a bill for any balance due on the claim.
Category: EMS

Appropriate treatment is rendered according to the injury or illness. Transportation to a medical facility is sometimes but not always required. If the patient’s condition warrants it, the medic unit provides this service.

Category: EMS

If the patient is in a condition to do so, he/she is asked for medical insurance information and a signature, as typically happens when being admitted to a hospital. If this practice might interfere with patient care, it is delayed or a relative is asked to provide the appropriate information. EMS reporting software currently used by Upper Arlington already collects most of the required information, and can be expanded to capture insurance information.

Category: EMS

Responding to a call for help remains the top priority, regardless of an individual’s medical insurance situation and ability to pay. Upper Arlington residents will not receive a bill for the transport or any outstanding balance, even if they do not have insurance. While non-residents will receive a bill for any outstanding balance not covered by insurance or the full amount due, the City will work with low-income individuals who do not have insurance as such cases arise.

Category: EMS

All calls to 9-1-1 in Upper Arlington go to the Northwest Regional Emergency Communications Center. Dispatchers immediately send the closest available unit that has the required equipment and personnel. This may be a medic unit, fire truck or a combination of the two. Typically these are Upper Arlington units however, if all Upper Arlington units are busy with other emergencies, units from other communities in Franklin County are called upon to respond, thanks to mutual aid agreements that assure quick emergency service.

Fats, Oils & Grease (11)

Grease interceptors often require maintenance from every 30 to 90 days depending on the nature of the facility and size of the interceptor. Please see your manufacturer’s guide for recommended cleaning schedule.

The City of Upper Arlington recommends regular maintenance to prevent the interceptor from exceeding 25% capacity.

Even though you may not cook with grease or prepare food at your establishment, if you are cleaning and/or rinsing dishes in your sink, you are using your grease interceptor. When dishes and other equipment are cleaned, the FOG is washed down the drain and into the grease trap. Your grease trap/interceptor may require less frequent cleaning than others but it still requires cleaning and semi-annual reporting.

Fats, oils and greases are natural by-products of the cooking and food preparation process. Common sources include food scraps, meat fats, cooking oils, lard, baked goods, salad dressings, sauces, marinades, dairy products, shortening, butter and margarine, coffee grinds, eggshells, grain, rice, seeds, etc. When dishes and other equipment are cleaned, the FOG is washed down the drain where it cools and separates from the dishwater.

Establishments that fail to report in a timely manner will be found in violation of City Ordinance 931.99 and subject to a fine of not more than $150. Each day’s violation constitutes a separate offense.

During routine cleaning and inspection of the City’s sanitary sewer lines, the Public Service Department can identify from which sanitary service area—and usually which specific building or neighborhood—grease is being discharged. If grease blockages are occurring frequently in a certain area, the Public Service Department will notify the establishments in the area so that they can be more aware of their grease disposal methods and work to fix the problem.

Establishments that fail to take corrective action by the time specified in the written order will be found in violation of City Ordinance 931.99 and subject to a fine of not more than one $150.00. Each day’s violation constitute a separate offense.

Fats, oils and greases are natural by-products of the cooking and food preparation process. Common sources include food scraps, meat fats, cooking oils, lard, baked goods, salad dressings, sauces, marinades, dairy products, shortening, butter and margarine, coffee grinds, eggshells, grain, rice, seeds, etc.

Grease traps are boxes located within the section of the drainage system that flows between the sinks in the kitchen and the sewer system. The most common grease traps are smaller, point-of-use units used under three-compartment sinks in the kitchen or adjacent to dishwashers. Grease traps can also be referred to as “hydro-mechanical interceptors.”

Grease interceptors are often located outside the establishment in large, in-ground tanks. Grease interceptors can also be referred to as “gravity interceptors.”

Most establishments will have both – a grease trap and a grease interceptor – but some will only have one or the other. If you have both, you are required to report the maintenance on each one separately.

  1. The Fats Oils & Grease (FOG) Reduction Program was implemented in order to monitor and reduce the amount of fats, oils and grease that enter the City’s sanitary sewer system.
  2. In accordance with City Ordinance 931.16(A), all establishments with grease interceptors and/or grease traps are required to report to the City’s Public Service Department in January and July of each year.

Per City Ordinance 931.16(A), establishments are required to report the maintenance of their grease interceptors in January and July of each year.

Cleaning records must now be submitted online: https://upperarlingtonoh.viewpointcloud.com/categories/1072

Maintenance of interceptor reporting, as defined in City Ordinance 931.16(A), is required by any type of business or establishment where grease or other food materials may be washed down the drain. Food service establishments are particularly affected because of the amount of fats, oils and grease that is created during food preparation, cooking and/or disposal.

However, it is important to know that many establishments contribute to FOG production, even if they do not produce or cook food. FOG is produced by restaurants, cafeterias, delis, bakeries, residential homeowners, daycares, assisted living, and social halls – basically anyone who deals with food.

Cleaning records must be kept using the Grease Interceptor Cleaning Report Form and the Grease Trap Cleaning Report Form. The reporting forms MUST include the size of the trap and/or interceptor and the amount of grease/solids removed. Receipts and manifests are no longer accepted.

Fats, oils and greases—when liquid—may appear harmless because they tend to flow easily down the drain. However, as the liquid cools it hardens and sticks to the insides of pipes. Once in the sewer system, FOG can partially or completely block wastewater flow, causing sanitary sewer backups and overflows. Proper disposal is essential in keeping sanitary sewer lines clear and flowing properly.

In accordance with City Ordinance 931.16(A), all establishments with grease interceptors and/or grease traps are required to report to the City’s Public Service Department in January and July of each year.

Finance Department (3)

You should contact the Finance Department at 614-583-5291.

No, all fees included on your utility invoice (stormwater, solid waste, neighborhood lighting utility—if applicable) run with the property and the City does not prorate the amount due should a property change hands during the year. The individual/party that owns the property in question when the utility bill is received is responsible for payment in full.We recommend that you discuss balancing your utility account through your realtor and escrow closing, similar to how property taxes are pro-rated.

No, it is a utility fee just like your water or electric bills, and is therefore not tax deductible.

Options include installing a rain garden or hiring a contractor to install a small yard drain in the area where the water ponds and pipe it out to the street.

For homes built on slabs, the line will likely froze where the pipe enters the home. For homes with basements, the line into the home likely froze where it passes through concrete block into the home.

Insulate pipes where freezing is likely to occur. If this is not possible, periodically turn on your water and let it run for several seconds, purchase a space heater to place in front of the pipes or purchase a heating coil that can be plugged in and wrapped around the pipes to keep them warm.

Try using a hair dryer and blowing warm air down onto frozen sections or into the opening of the block wall where the water line enters the home.
