Pasquotank-Camden Emergency Medical Services may be a good service to the community, but it is no friend to the disabled veteran.
I spent half my life serving my country and now get a little pension for being 80 percent disabled. So when I found out I had a coronary blockage and needed a stent put in, I was transported to a hospital in Virginia.
I told everyone that I was a disabled veteran and that I did not have insurance — that they needed to bill the Veterans Administration for my transport. But did they listen? No! They took my little tax return!
I needed that money to make a car payment. Their attitude was “you are responsible for that bill.”
