Missouri Bill Signing
Chief Justin Duncan (CEO of WCAD and President of MEMSA), along with several EMS representatives, met with Governor Parsons as he signed SB 655: The Lagers Bill and SB 725: The GEMT Fix.
The first Bill, SB 725, streamlines the reimbursement process for Missouri ambulance districts. The second Bill, SB655,enables LAGERS pension payments to begin at age 55 for EMS, dispatchers, and corrections officers. LAGERS pension payments were already available to police officers and firefighters beginning at age 55, but we are excited to see that same benefit now available for prehospital providers as well!
