Pensioner Ambulance Service
Western Australian aged pensioners are entitled to free ambulance services.
Western Australians over 65, and in receipt of an Australian Government pension, are entitled to free ambulance services.
WA Ambulance services covered include:
- All emergency ambulance services; and
- Non-urgent ambulance services that are deemed to be medically necessary.
Inter-hospital transfers between two public hospitals will be arranged and paid for by the sending hospital. It is important to note that inter-hospital transfers, where one or both hospitals are a private hospital, are not covered by this policy.
Privately insured aged pensioners and seniors should check with their insurer as to whether inter-hospital transfers are covered by health insurance.
