Effective immediately, the Manitoba government has reduced ambulance fees to a maximum of $250.00 per ride. Fees have been reduced in stages over the years from an average of $500 in 2016 to $425 in 2017. The fee in 2018 was $340.00.
“High ambulance fees affect many Manitobans, particularly older aduts and seniors living on low or fixed incomes.” said Connie Newman, executive director, Manitoba Association of Senior Centre. “Reducing fees makes it more affordable for all Manitobans when they need emergency medical care.”
