Patient Care Services - Ambulance Fees


All Ontario residents with a valid Ontario Health Card that arrive at the hospital by ambulance and are deemed medically necessary are required to pay a fee of $45 under Ontario law. The remaining portion of the fee is covered under the Ontario Health Insurance Act. 
Mackenzie Health bills on behalf of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. We accept debit cards, credit cards, or exact cash as a convenient way for patients to pay the ambulance fee. 
Payment will be accepted at Emergency Registration. 
  • Special circumstances apply.
  • If the ambulance is deemed medically unnecessary, the ambulance transportation is not insured under the Ontario Health Insurance Act and the patient must pay the full ambulance fee of $240.
  • Patients not eligible for OHIP must pay the full ambulance fee of $240.
