Dear Oklahoma Ambulance Providers and Vendor Partners:
The 2022 Oklahoma Ambulance Association’s Membership Drive is Underway!!
The Oklahoma Ambulance Association (OKAMA) is pleased to announce our 2022 membership drive and we welcome back our current members and we look forward to new members joining the ranks of our Association. As we look forward to 2022, we will continue to work diligently, improving and protecting the ambulance industry’s place in the state, but we need your help and support to continue our mission. Our industry continues to face incredible reimbursement and funding issues as well as regulatory concerns at a local, statewide, and national level. The challenges are complex, but with your support the Oklahoma Ambulance Association can make a difference.
Last winter, OKAMA was instrumental in receiving and distributing Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) funds that were allocated to the state by the federal government. Our comprehensive request document resulted in a $5,000,000 award that was distributed to all licensed ambulance services that provide ground emergency medical transportation in our state. None of this would have been possible without OKAMA and your support.
Since 2002, OKAMA has worked countless hours to promote communication, understanding and advances for EMS in our state and our work continues. We at OKAMA stand ready to represent the interests of EMS and ambulance services in the unexpected situations that present any new challenges. OKAMA continues to be strong. Our member companies account for over 85% of all ambulance transports in the state of Oklahoma; these numbers allow OKAMA to be a strong advocate for the Oklahoma ambulance industry.
Please complete a membership application, found on our website www.okama.org and return with your dues before December 31, 2021. Through your participation and support will we have a stronger, more unified representative voice.
