The sound of the siren from an Ambulance is spine chilling at the best of times, but when it’s for you, the last thing you want to be worried about is how you’re going to pay for it.
We all know and love how running can take us to some pretty amazing places to events or recreation. Everywhere from the biggest cities to the remotest parts of the world – some are remote and others may be in congested cities.
Unfortunately, injuries do happen and they sometimes happen in the worst locations. It could be anything from a sprained ankle to a snake bite!
Let’s hope that none of us ever need to use it, but for the small percentage that actually do, you will soon find out that a one-off payment for an average of $50 per year, sure is worth it.
Should you need to use an ambulance and you don’t have this basic cover, your accident could set you up for a bill anywhere from just a few hundred dollars to thousands, depending on where and when you needed it. In Australia, the fees for an emergency call out can range from $300 to over $1,000 with some states adding additional fees depending on treatment as well as extra charges and or fees per kilometer.
We hope you never have this view and your only thoughts beside your obvious injury is that you wish you had that ambulance cover – save yourself the worry and make sure you start off the new year with one less thing to stress about!
