UNYAN Memberships

UNYAN consists of two types of membership, General Membership and Associate Membership.  UNYAN’s general membership is represented by commercial ambulance providers that form a network for sharing information on a variety of issues and initiatives supporting its mission of quality, affordable and timely patient care. UNYAN advocates all year to effectively address the many topics that affect the industry. Associate members sponsor UNYAN and join a group that shares an interest and commitment to the Association and the industry.

UNYAN General Membership Benefits

  • Unified Voice. UNYAN provides a unified voice that speaks to our governments at the local, state, and federal levels. The most important benefit that we offer our members is a strong and unified voice. For example, thanks to UNYAN's hard work, the Legislature included in the 2005-2006 Budget an appropriation of two-million dollars for enhanced funding for emergency medical transportation services. This funding will be used to supplement the current Medicaid reimbursement rates for all emergency medical transportation service providers.
  • Lobbyist. Our lobbyist firm Marsh, Wassermann & McHugh keeps a finger on the pulse of state government for UNYAN, and keeps the board and UNYAN committees informed and abreast of what's happening in Albany.
  • Membership Meetings. Members meet five times a year. This affords all of our members an opportunity for networking and sharing of information. The UNYAN meetings provide an excellent forum for an exchange of ideas and experiences.
  • Associate Membership. UNYAN's Associate Members (vendors) include businesses dealing in EMS supplies, technology and insurance. Most Associate Members provide UNYAN members with discounted rates and other preferential deals.
  • Information Resource. UNYAN headquarters serves as a clearing house for our industry.  State and federal issues dealing with Emergency Medical Transportation and pre-hospital care is regularly forwarded to the membership.  Members receive quarterly newsletters with the latest news from the association. 
  • Lobby Day. The UNYAN Annual EMS Lobby Day is held in Albany every Spring. This event provides member companies the opportunity to meet with Assemblymembers and Senators to discuss EMS issues. In addition, each member company recognizes and honors their Outstanding Employee of the year at the UNYAN Recognition Banquet.
  • Educational Conference.  Members and their staff are invited to attend the annual UNYAN Educational Conference where attendees can learn, grow and network. 
  • Disaster Response. UNYAN has developed a comprehensive Disaster Response Program, enabling us to quickly mobilize numerous ambulances and personnel to respond to disaster areas. The UNYAN Disaster Response Plan was activated for the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City as well as more recently for both Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita. UNYAN is seen as a valuable resource by the New York State Department of Health for disaster response.
  • Reimbursement Forum.  UNYAN has established a mechanism to share relevant information on Reimbursement related topics, and to facilitate the ability to ask other members pertinent questions on these issues.  Members have access to a Reimbursement Forum utilizing Yahoo Groups.
