Ambulance only

Did you know that an ambulance ride could cost you thousands?

We paid a $24,000 air ambulance fare in 2018 with zero out-of-pocket expenses for our member.

Ambulance transport is generally very expensive. In  NSW for instance, the minimum ambulance charge for an emergency call-out is $392 before you even hit the road where a per kilometre charge of $3.54 kicks in. The maximum charge for a road ambulance? $6,424. Ouch. 
 
Remember, there are also air and sea ambulances, which cost even more – up to tens of thousands of dollars. 

All Peoplecare Combo, Hospital or Extras covers include 100% ambulance cover to ease your mind and assist with some pretty hefty bills.

You can also purchase ambulance cover on it's own.

Queensland and Tasmanian residents don’t need to worry about ambulance travel in their states, as it’s free. Queensland residents are also covered by their state when travelling around Australia.
