    • Does your organization receive federal healthcare funds?
    • Do you bill Medicare or Medicaid?

    If so, you are required by federal law to have an EMS-specific healthcare compliance program.

    That is where EMS Compliance comes in. They provide a step-by-step guide to get your program up and running quickly. This is an easy button to make sure you are protected sooner rather than later!


    Medicare is targeting emergency ambulance services in South Carolina and across the country for improper claims. If your organization comes under investigation and you do not have a compliance program in place, you are at significantly greater risk for massive fines and could even be held personally responsible.

    The urgency and importance of having a compliance program cannot be overstated.

    That is why SCEMSA has signed an affiliate partnership agreement with EMS Compliance and is thrilled to offer its members an effective EMS Compliance solution at a special discounted rate that makes compliance attainable for all within the association.

    About EMS Compliance

    The EMS Compliance solution is the only program specifically tailored for EMS services. Designed by industry experts, the EMS Compliance solution is...

    • easy-to-implement
    • meets all federal requirements, and
    • for members of the South Carolina EMS Association, it is now more affordable than ever!

    Duke Energy supports first responders with grants for emergency preparedness in South Carolina

    As hurricane season begins, emergency managers and first responders turn their eyes to the tropics as they continue to prepare their communities for the possibility of impacts from severe weather.

    Duke Energy’s Emergency Preparedness and Storm Resiliency Grant Program was designed to help organizations with roles in emergency preparedness increase their resiliency to these events through advanced preparation, planning, equipment and training. Applicants could request funds up to $20,000. Grants were awarded to 32 nonprofits and governmental entities across the state.

    SCEMSA was awarded a $17,500 grant from this program. Through this funding opportunity, we will be able to perform an in-depth gap analysis to make better plans and strengthen our EMS readiness to respond to natural disasters.

    SCEMSA receives $35,000 grant from Power:Ed to update and expand training programs to boost EMT pipeline across rural SC

    The South Carolina Emergency Medical Services Association (SCEMSA) has been awarded a $35,000 grant to boost education accessibility in rural SC, from Power:Ed, a philanthropy of SC Student Loan Corporation.

    The funds will be used to update and expand workforce training curricula to allow SCEMSA to serve more EMT candidates, particularly those in rural areas without ready access to other training programs. The goal is to increase opportunities for current and future EMS providers through timely, accessible, and cost-effective education across all populations and communities. EMS as a critical need service is experiencing significant workforce shortages, and the focus of this project is to increase access to EMS education for the communities that are most significantly underserved (rural and disparate communities) through utilization of distributive education models in partnership with the South Carolina Regional Offices for training. The current education model fails to reach rural and/or disparate populations, so with its partners, SCEMSA will use a distributed/hybrid education model that takes education to the student when and where it is meaningful for them. This allows participation in initial EMS education across the state and aids in delivering education to the communities and EMS agencies who are most significantly impacted by a lack of providers.
