AMM - The Fiscal Intermediary for Sacramento

Welcome To Sacramento County Physicians Emergency Medical Services

In 1987, the Legislature enacted Senate Bill (SB) 12 allowing each county to establish, finance, and administer a Maddy Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Fund. It is named after the bill’s author, Ken Maddy. It was subsequently amended in 1988 (SB 612, Maddy) to create a penalty assessment of two (2) dollars out of every ten (10) dollars that is levied on applicable vehicle code fines, penalties, and forfeitures (Government Code Section 76000).

In 2007, the Legislature enacted SB 1773 (Richie’s Fund) allowing each count to assess an additional penalty in the amount of two (2) dollars for every ten (10) dollars upon applicable vehicle code fines (Government Code Section 76000.5).

The Maddy EMS Funds, defined by statute, are intended to support local emergency medical services agencies, trauma services, uncompensated emergency care, and pediatric care services provided to patients who do not have health insurance coverage for emergency services and care, cannot afford to pay for those services, and for whom payment will not be made through any private coverage.

Sacramento County Physician Emergency Medical Services (PEMS) program is the County’s implementation for disbursement of the Maddy EMS Fund.
