Pensioner Ambulance Service
West Australian pensioners are entitled to free ambulance services.
West Australian residents, over the age of 65, and in receipt of a full 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.
