Addressing the Rising Costs of an Ambulance Ride

If the first thing you think of when you see lights and sirens is CHA-CHING, you are not alone. Ambulance costs ballooned 22% between 2017 and 2020, and they continue to rise, setting even those with “good” private health insurance back between $500-$1,000 per ride. 

Ancillary insurance products, such as Accident, Critical Illness, and Hospital Indemnity insurance, can help cover these costs. These products provide lump-sum cash benefits after a covered health event, and the cash can be used to pay for the unexpected, out-of-pocket expenses that can occur. Many plans include specific cash benefits for ambulatory usage, getting people on the road to recovery faster.   

Because when faced with an emergency, no one should hesitate to get the services they need.
