Ambulance cover is insurance that covers you for the cost of emergency ambulance transport and emergency treatment by paramedics.
In most states of Australia, if you need an urgent ambulance trip, you’ll be left with an expensive bill. Medicare doesn’t cover any ambulance services, so the person who needs the ambulance will usually have to pay for it themselves.
Unless you live in Queensland or Tasmania, ambulance costs aren’t subsidised by the state government. We recommend taking out ambulance insurance, so you don’t have to worry about money in a stressful medical emergency.
Ambulance rides can be scary (and so can the fees!)
Depending on which state you’re in, an emergency ambulance callout could cost $900 – $1200.
At HIF, we want all our members to feel safe and to be covered in case of emergency. That’s why we include ambulance cover in all levels of our Extras Cover.
