CHET Billing Procedure
The CHET Billing Forms are due the first week of each month to Tiffany Rice (MC-5084) or the CHET Mailbox in the PICU reception area.
CHET Billing Sheets can be downloaded here: CHET Billing Form.
When filling out the billing sheet, the following information would apply:
The Transport Fee is paid for transports meeting any of the following criteria:
Departure or arrival time between 1800 to 0800

You are paid for transport on Saturday, Sunday and Holidays no matter what time the transport
