It is a CIT requirement that where a CIT First Aid Officer considers it necessary for an ambulance, one will be called.
If an ambulance is called to treat you the cost is borne by you. Certain students may already be covered for ambulance travel such as:
- ACT Pensioner Concession and Health Care card holders
- Full-time students under 26 who are covered by their family's health insurance
- Students already covered by Private Health Insurance.
Although you may not have requested an ambulance personally, an ambulance may be called on your behalf to assist in administering medical assistance. ACT legislation places a legal obligation on the person receiving the ambulance service to pay the account.
