Most ambulance fees for people with a valid Prince Edward Island health card are 75 per cent subsidized by the provincial government. The current subsidized rate is $150.00. The fees are a flat rate.
If you are unable to pay the fee you were charged for ground ambulance service, Island EMS can offer you an interest free payment plan based on your ability to pay. Please call the Island EMS billing office for more information. (902)-892-9995

Ground ambulance services are an uninsured service not covered by the Canada Health Act. This means they are the province’s responsibility to deliver and fund.

Anyone traveling outside their province of residence should make sure they have appropriate travel insurance.
