Depending on the type of treatment or transport needed when you call Triple Zero (000) there may be a cost for the service provided.
The average cost of emergency treatment and transport by ambulance is more than $1000. If a paramedic or ambulance officer attends to you but assess you as being able to stay home or make your own way to a care facility, there is also a charge.
Should you need us, you can be protected against costs of ambulance transport and treatment by becoming an Ambulance Cover member. Being an Ambulance Cover member gives you peace of mind. Our singles or family membership options will ensure you and your loved ones are covered against unexpected emergency ambulance fees.
Many private health insurance policies limit or exclude certain ambulance costs. You could need an ambulance for non-emergency transport, such as a hospital transfer. Our Ambulance Cover Extras membership can help to extend insurance limitations to cover you for non-emergency transport.
