Why am I getting an ambulance invoice?
Alberta Health Care does not cover ambulance services. The cost of using the ambulance is your responsibility, except for in-patient hospital transfers which are then covered by the sending hospital. Prior to April 1, 2010 the Town of Cochrane’s municipally-operated ambulance service was a user-pay system so that the costs would not be the sole responsibility of Cochrane taxpayers. A listing of the charges/rates set by Council was sent with your invoice. After April 1, 2010, even though the province took over the service, an invoice will still be issued by Alberta Health Services.
