Ambulance Service Fee Policy

The Coalition has been receiving many calls with respect to ambulance service fees. We have been in touch with the department of Health for clarification as to how seniors may be affected with regards to the new policy that was effective July 2009. The following represents an excerpt of the policy.

Fees for current recipients of entitled services of Social Development will be waived, including those subsidized residents in receipt of a health card who reside in Nursing Homes, Special Care Homes or their own homes, and those in Foster Care;

Fees for patients in the Extra-Mural Program will be waived for eligible clients under medical care as appropriate, based on medical condition and/or mobility challenges;
