Three [3] Key Findings

 •  Among patients aged 19-35, mental health conditions were the most common diagnosis associated with emergency ground ambulance in the period 2016-2020.
 •  Throughout the period 2016-2020, advanced-life-support (ALS) accounted for a larger percentage of emergency ground ambulance claim lines than basic-life-support (BLS) services. For example, in 2020, 51.5% of emergency ground ambulance claim lines were associated with ALS compared to 48.5% associated with BLS.
 •  Individuals 65 years and older were consistently the largest age group associated with emergency ground ambulance services, though their share of the distribution decreased from 37.7% in 2016 to 34% in 2020.
