37.104.106    LICENSE APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

(1) An application for a license to conduct an emergency medical service, including the renewal of a license, must be made on electronic forms specified by the department, accompanied by the license fee, and received by the department not less than 30 days prior to the commencement of a new emergency medical service or 15 days prior to the expiration of the license, in the case of an application for renewal.

(2) Within 30 days from receipt of an emergency medical service license application or, if the department requests additional information about the application, within 30 days from receipt of that information, the department shall:

(a) issue the license;

(b) issue the license with stipulations;

(c) issue a provisional license; or

(d) deny the license.

(3) The department may deny an emergency medical services license if:

(a) the application does not provide all of the requested information; or

(b) there is evidence that the applicant is not complying with these rules.

(4) If the department does not take action on the application within 30 days after its receipt, the emergency medical services license must be issued unless the applicant is known to be in violation of these rules.

(5) The department shall inspect each emergency medical service prior to issuing a license. If an inspection cannot be conducted, the department may issue a provisional license until an inspection can be completed.

(6) To establish staggered terms of licensing:

(a) When the department receives a completed license application for a new emergency medical service, it will assign that service a number; and

(b) if it grants the license:

(i) an odd numbered service will be issued a license expiring December 31 of the year in which it was issued; and

(ii) an even numbered service will be issued a license expiring December 31 of the year following the year in which it was issued.

(7) The service license must be updated within 10 days when any information contained in the service license application changes.

(8) If an emergency medical service from another state identifies Montana as part of its service area, and if it regularly provides an initial emergency medical services response into Montana, the emergency medical service must obtain a Montana emergency medical services license as provided by these rules, unless the other state's licensing standards are essentially comparable to those of Montana, in which case the department may license these services through a reciprocal agreement with the other state.

(9) An emergency medical service responding into Montana to transfer patients from a Montana medical facility to a non-Montana medical facility is not required to obtain a Montana license if it is licensed in its state of origin.

(10) If a licensed emergency medical service is not reasonably available, the occasional and infrequent transportation by other means is not prohibited.

(11) In a catastrophe or major emergency when licensed ambulances are insufficient to render services required, non-licensed emergency medical services may be used.
