When you need to be transported in an ambulance to a hospital or other approved facility in order to receive immediate professional attention.

When, as an admitted patient, you are transferred to another hospital (excluding transfers between public hospital facilities as an admitted patient).

When an ambulance is called to attend to you, but having received immediate professional attention, transport by ambulance is not subsequently required.
