What is the average cost of an ambulance ride?


The cost of an ambulance varies based on location, though the national average is between $500 and $1,500. The distance traveled and insurance also affect the cost.

The cost of an ambulance ride can be as low as $350 or as high as $2,000. Not all insurance companies cover ambulance rides, and many companies that feature this coverage do not cover 100 percent of the costs. The extra costs of ambulance rides come from the emergency medical technicians driving a longer distance to reach the hospital, issuing medications or IVs, and providing other essential medical assistance during the ambulance ride.
