If you've received a bill for your NSW ambulance service, you can pay online.

Ambulance fees are based on a call out charge plus a per kilometre charge, based on the round trip between the ambulance station, pick up address, destination and return to the ambulance station.

Medicare doesn't cover the costs.

Ambulance fee exemptions: some ambulance services are provided free of charge to people who meet certain criteria.

Pay online

  • eligible for these other exemptions.

  • The NSW government subsidises 49% of ambulance fees for NSW residents only.
  • If you're finding it difficult to pay the fee, you can arrange for a payment plan or apply for a fee review.
  • If you're exempt from payment, provide your details online.
  • If you don't pay your ambulance bill, it will be given to Revenue NSW to deal with.
