Free Ambulance


NSW Residents who hold a Pensioner Concession Card get free Ambulance use.

How much? 

Free. A callout for an ambulance in NSW is close to $400, and there is a cost per kilometre. For other NSW residents the Government covers 51% of the cost.

How to apply? 

No need to apply. Holders of the Pensioner Concession Card get ambulance services free of charge,


If you have a Pensioner Concession Card and private health insurance - it may be worth checking to see if you are paying for ambulance cover in NSW that you don’t need.
