Houston City Council is looking into raising ambulance fees, but the council wants to know who it would affect the most before going through with the vote. Council members have asked for a study of the ambulance fee hike. City officials are looking at raising the fee from $415, to $800 a ride. Medicare and Medicaid would continue to reimburse at the same rate they do now.
