County commissioners will vote Tuesday whether to write off $2.3 million in uncollected debt this fiscal year.
The Emergency Services department had the bulk of that uncollected debt. It was unable to recover more than $2 million it was owed for responding to various life-saving calls.
Emergency Services accepts payment from insurance companies, Medicare and Medicaid, but many times the patient incurs a co-payment. Sometimes those patients do not pay the co-payment, and sometimes patients do not have insurance and do not pay for their emergency service.
The county’s Environmental Services department will write off more than $340,000 in uncollected debt, which comes from its 75,000 water-utility accounts.
The county stresses that it is not absolving county residents from their debts and that it will continue to try to collect the money it is owed.
