Yes. Alberta residents ambulance service rates are a flat rate of $385.00 for any patient transported to a hospital regardless of distance traveled and $250.00 if an EMS crew assesses and/or treats a patient but does not transport them to a hospital. Out of province residents may have an additional surcharge added.
The only insurance company we can bill directly is Blue Cross; if we are provided with the Group and ID number of the card holder. Other insurance providers typically require the insured to pay their ambulance bill and submit a receipt for reimbursement.
