AN ACT to amend the insurance law, in relation to  community  based  air
  ambulance  subscription services; and providing for the repeal of such
  provisions upon expiration thereof


  Section  1.  Legislative intent. The legislature finds New York's non-
profit community based air ambulance  service  providers  provide  rapid
emergency response and medical transport services saving dozens of lives
annually,  particularly  in  remote  areas  of the state. Not-for-profit
community based ambulance service providers rely on philanthropic chari-
table donations for the financial means to provide such  vital  services
to  the  people  of the state. In doing so, not-for-profit air ambulance
providers relieve the taxpayers of the burden of this critical and cost-
ly yet vital community service.
  Therefore, the legislature finds it is  in  the  state's  interest  to
support  an  air ambulance subscription program that assists the philan-
thropic mission of not-for-profit community based air ambulance  provid-
ers.  Currently,  New York state's communities already benefit from less
expensive non-profit air ambulance services because profit margins  need
not  be built into their overall operating costs. By supporting not-for-
profit community based providers, this legislation intends to ensure air
ambulance subscription member dues are  reinvested  into  servicing  the
community, not into dividends for profit-seeking shareholders.
  S  2. Subsection (k) of section 1108 of the insurance law, as added by
chapter 246 of the laws of 2012, is renumbered subsection (l) and a  new
subsection (m) is added to read as follows:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
