Ambulance fees

The full cost of ambulance treatment and/or transport applies to people who are not insured against the cost of ambulance services. The fees do not apply to Victorian Pensioner Concession Card or Health Care Card holders.

Some health insurance policies may include ambulance cover, however some policies may not cover more than one emergency ambulance trip per year, or the full costs of air transport or non emergency transport fees.

The Ambulance Membership Subscription Scheme is offered as a cost effective way for Victorians to be fully insured against these user fees.
