State ambulance schemes

QLD & TAS

Ambulance cover is not available to residents of these states as they are covered by state schemes.

NSW & ACT

Residents with private hospital cover don't need ambulance cover; it's already funded by a levy on your premium. If you have a Commonwealth concession card, you are entitled to free ambulance services.

WA

We don't pay benefits if you're aged 65 or over and are eligible for free ambulance services. If you're eligible for subsidised services, you may be able to claim the remaining cost from Medibank. A $100 co-payment applies to non-emergency transport as classified by the ambulance service.

For more information call us on 1300 177 479.

Department of Veterans Affairs Gold Card holders are covered for state ambulance services in every State by the Department.

In some States and Territories government concession card holders are entitled to free ambulance services (such as Health Care Concession Card holders in ACT, NSW and Vic, Pensioner Concession Card holders in ACT, NSW, NT, Vic and WA and Commonwealth Seniors Health Card holders in NSW and NT).
