Louisa County is trying to decide if emergency responders will start charging for a ride in an ambulance.
The County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing Monday night to talk about the issue.
This proposal is for a program called Revenue Recovery.
It's something many localities around Virginia have already put into place.
That way a flat fee is charged and Louisa doesn't have to rely on donations to make sure they can get to you when you need them.
"We've been exploring this idea for a while and we wanted to take our time and make sure that the public is aware that regardless of what your financial situation is, you will not suffer from receiving the medical attention that you need," said Supervisor, Fitzgerald Barnes.
