FAQs
Does my private health insurance cover ambulance costs?

Ambulance Victoria has no affiliations with private health insurers, so you’ll need to check your policy.

Even if private health insurers do offer ambulance cover, keep in mind they don’t take out Ambulance Victoria membership on your behalf and will set their own terms and conditions about what’s covered.

Contact your fund and use the private health insurance checklist to see if your policy’s cover is sufficient.

What does an Ambulance Victoria membership cover me for?

Ambulance Victoria membership cover includes:

  • All emergency road ambulance transport
  • All mobile intensive care ambulance attendance and treatment
  • All emergency air ambulance and clinically necessary non-emergency air ambulance
  • All ambulance treatment when transport is not required
  • All clinically necessary non-emergency patient transport
  • Emergency ambulance treatment and transport services provided while interstate.

In all cases ambulance transport costs are only covered when transport is to the nearest and most appropriate medical facility, as determined by Ambulance Victoria and where there’s a clear clinical need for transport to occur.

 When am I not covered by Ambulance Victoria membership?

Ambulance Victoria membership does not cover:

  • Services required for social or convenience reasons, such as to be closer to home.
  • Transport from one private home to another.
  • Transport back to Victoria not clinically necessary and which has not been approved by Ambulance Victoria in advance.
