Avoid costly ambulance transport

If you need immediate medical attention and an ambulance is the only transport suitable for your condition, the last thing you want to worry about is the cost. With Medibank ambulance insurance, you're covered Australia wide.

Ambulance inclusions
Included Treatments Waiting periods Waiting periods explained Waiting periods are a length of time you need to wait after taking out your cover before you can claim or receive benefits covered by your policy. Waiting periods apply to new members or for new services, including if you're changing to a higher level of cover. If you're switching, we'll recognise waiting periods you've already served, so you'll only need to serve any balance with us before you can claim.

State ambulance schemes


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


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.


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.
