This outlines the costs and related billing charges from transport in an ambulance in Victoria.

Emergency cases classified by the Emergency Services Telecommunications Authority as having a final priority of 3 or lower will be charged as emergency transports.
Metropolitan Emergency Road $1,115.00
Regional and Rural Emergency Road $1,645.00
Please note that where an emergency resource is used to undertake Non-Emergency Patient Transport, cases classified by the Emergency Services Telecommunications Authority as having a final priority of 4 or higher will be charged as non-emergency transports.
The classification of emergency or non-emergency is not relevant for air transport fees. The type of transport - rotary or fixed wing - determines the fee. Reflecting the cost of service delivery, fees for air transport comprise two components: 1) a fixed charge based on respective usage which is levied separately in advance via a lump sum(s); and 2) a variable charge for each time the air transport is used which is levied per transport.
*For other users of fixed wing aircraft, this is combined into the one variable fee - charged per transport. For other users who use the rotary aircraft, Government has waived the fixed charge.
Air transport fees do not include any road transport associated with the air transport. Road transports a billed separately, as per the fees above.
All transport fees are GST exclusive.
For Ambulance service charges related to third parties please view the Department of Health Guidelines.
