Does Medicare cover ambulance services?

Reviewed and updated 20 April 2023

No. Medicare does not cover the cost of being treated by paramedics and/or being transported in an ambulance.

Depending on where you live, you may have to pay if you use an ambulance service or the state or territory government where you live could offer a free service.
