When to Use an Ambulance

Listen to activity

If you need to take an ambulance to a hospital, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care will pay for most of the cost. You will have to pay for the rest. If the doctor who sees you at the hospital does not think that ambulance service was necessary, you must pay the full cost ($240 or more).
If you are very sick or injured but do not need an ambulance, go to the emergency department of the nearest hospital. Take your health card (OHIP) and other private health insurance plan documentation with you.
