In an effort to save time, streamline processes, reduce data entry, and eliminate additional processing fees, the CoAEMSP is encouraging all programs to pay invoices via ACH, Automated Clearing House. ACH payments are electronic payments that transfer funds directly from a checking account to the payee. Instead of writing out and mailing a paper check, the money moves automatically.
You may pay invoices by Automated Clearing House (ACH) or the View and Pay Invoice option that will appear in the email with the invoice. Credit cards are not accepted. The CoAEMSP will accept checks; however, know that we are moving toward requiring all payments to be made via ACH or View and Pay.
All programs selecting to pay by ACH should email a payment advice to firstname.lastname@example.org. [A payment advice provides the details on a payment and provides advance notice to the recipient.]
The advantages of paying via ACH or the View and Pay Invoice are:
- Pay directly through the invoice
- Secure environment
- Payment processes in 3 days instead of 3 weeks (checks)
- Automatically applies to the invoice (less data entry errors)
Effective immediately, the Program Director will serve as the Billing Contact for the program. The program is no longer required to submit a personnel contact form for the Billing Contact.

All programs (CAAHEP-accredited and CoAEMSP-LoR) must annually publish their outcome results (e.g. National Registry or State Written Exam, Retention, and Positive Job Placement) from the calendar year two years prior verifiable by the latest annual report required. For example, outcomes data for 2017 was submitted in 2019 (as a reminder, the reason for reporting data two years prior is to allow programs time to gather a complete set of outcomes on their cohorts). The data published must be verifiable by the program’s Annual Report due by March 15 of each year. Since the Annual Report is based on the calendar year two years prior, the outcomes data is no longer reported as a 3-year average as previously required. Programs may choose to publish additional data, but at a minimum must indicate year by year results.
To assist the public in finding your outcomes, programs must publish their latest outcomes results on the Paramedic educational program’s homepage of its website. Programs must provide the direct link to the website location of the published outcomes in their Annual Report. The direct link will be forwarded to CAAHEP.Annual Reports
Note: The CoAEMSP office will be closed Wednesday, May 29 through Tuesday, June 4, and will reopen on Wednesday, June 5 at 8 a.m. Central Time. Staff will be hosting ACCREDITCON.
