The roots of AMB go back to 1979 when Arlington Heights Illinois Firefighter, William E. Andres Jr. decided to start his own private ambulance service. During his years of owning Rescue Eight Paramedic service, his staff excelled at ambulance billing and reimbursement.

That modest beginning grew the business by word of mouth and good reputation. After the sale of his private ambulance service in 1995, the concept of an EMS billing service was born.

AMB began municipal billing operations in 1995 with six clients. We have grown to provide services to over 170 agencies, including:

    • large municipalities
    • fire protection districts
    • volunteer departments
    • private ambulance services of all sizes

Although William E. Andres Jr., has long since retired, his family and previous management staff own and operate the company today. Today AMB proudly employs over 100 staff members.

Our organizational experience dates back to a time when claims were submitted on paper and typed by hand. As the billing process has evolved, so has the technology and staff of AMB.

AMB is committed to providing a state of the art electronic billing service; relying on our highly trained staff, industry experience and robust technological systems.
