The price of an ambulance has risen and fallen with an ambulance, but it appears to be the same thing for all sports teams.
The cost of an emergency vehicle rose about 15% in the last three years, from $16,000 in 2012 to $17,000 last year, according to a study by the consulting firm IHS Markit.
That’s up from $14,000 a decade ago.
The study said the increase was primarily driven by a surge in the cost of private insurance.
The price of a new ambulance jumped $3,800, to $2,900, last year.
But that increase was driven by the increase in private insurance premiums, not the price of the ambulance itself, according a report from IHSMarkit.
The cost of new vehicles has also increased.
That increase was $4,800 last year compared to $1,500 a decade earlier.
The report also said the cost to run an ambulance increased about 16% in that time.
But that increase has been largely driven by growth in the number of ambulances needed.
The number of patients treated in an ambulance rose nearly 13% last year from 20,917 to 22,058.
That figure was almost double the national average for a single-year period of 2013.
The rising cost of ambulance service has prompted some sports leagues to increase the cost for an ambulance and increase the number or types of ambularies that can be provided.
The NFL has a $30 million contract with West Point to provide ambulances, but that number has grown to $50 million.
The Chicago Bears are considering building a new ambulatory complex at Soldier Field.
The Chicago Fire has also spent more on ambulances and increased the number to 8,000 from 5,500, said Fire spokesman Mike Grier.
The NFL also recently added a new service that offers a full medical evacuation of injured players at the conclusion of games.
The study said in 2014, a person could get a full evacuation in a full ambulance.
But now, a team is required to get a second ambulance to transport the injured player.
That was to save money.
The league says it doesn’t have an exact breakdown of ambulance costs for each team, but the data shows a spike in ambulance costs in 2014.
For the first time, ambulances cost $1.5 million last year — up from the $1 million it cost a decade prior.
The new cost of the emergency vehicles is also driven by demand for ambulances that can run on compressed air.
That is a relatively new technology that has been used by ambulance companies for a number of years, according the study.
