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.
What you'll need
- your payment reference number (located in the 'How to pay' section of the invoice)
- the issue date (located in the box on the top right hand corner of the invoice)
- your method of payment.
How to pay
- Select the 'Pay online' button.
- Enter your payment reference number and the issue date.
- Check the 'I'm not a robot' box.
- Select 'Next'.
- Enter your payment details.
Anyone who received an invoice can pay the NSW ambulance fee.
However, you may be eligible for an exemption, if you're :
- a pensioner and concession card holder
- a resident with private health insurance
- eligible for these other exemptions.
Things to keep in mind ...
- 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.
