HUNTINGTON — More than 200 West Virginia ambulance services will see a 10% bump in reimbursement rates after the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recently approved the increase.

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources’ (DHHR) Bureau for Medical Services on Wednesday said the increase will provide an additional $11.8 million in reimbursements per fiscal year for ambulance ground transportation rates.
