BC Ambulance Service - BC Emergency Health Services

Provides both ground and air ambulance services to residents of British Columbia. The Province of British Columbia subsidizes about 90 per cent of the cost of transporting a patient by ambulance. When an emergency medical problem requires that you be transported by ambulance, you will be billed a user fee of $80. If the fee poses a financial problem, the Ministry of Health's revenue section will work out a payment schedule to accommodate you. If an ambulance is called by the patient, the patient's family, or a care facility and the patient is not transported to hospital, there will be a $50 fee. In a medical emergency: Call 911, where available; or Call the EMERGENCY phone number listed on the inside cover of your telephone book; or If a telephone book is not available, call the operator by dialing 0. For ambulance billing, contact (250) 356-0052
