Roane County is on the verge of hiring its third contractor in less than six years to handle billing for the ambulance service.
Previously, the county handled ambulance billing in-house, but eliminated that department on Jan. 14, 2011.
A month later, it hired NRG to handle the billing.
The county wasn’t happy with those services, so it dumped NRG and hired Intermedix.
The county is now unhappy with Intermedix and wants to contract with Ambulance Medical Billing.
