A resolution advanced by the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation passed during the AFBF delegate session. MFBF Vice President Carolyn Olson said the resolution would reclassify an ambulance from transportation to a medical emergency vehicle. “That would allow Medicare and Medicaid to reimburse families for an emergency ambulance ride,” said Olson. Minnesota also brought forth and passed a resolution to increase training and funding for rural emergency medical services. Rural vitality continues to be a focus for its membership. “We do need to have a strong agriculture system to help keep our communities strong.”
