Join our Supporter Scheme by paying a small annual subscription and receive free emergency ambulance cover for you and your family, as well as supporting our vital services.

By paying an annual subscription and becoming a supporter you will receive:

  • free medical emergency attendance if required
  • free emergency ambulance transport to hospital or an emergency medical clinic if required
  • free attendance in a medical emergency and transport to hospital or an emergency medical clinic, if required, for accident related injuries more than 24 hours old (ACC may cover those less than 24 hours old).

Choose from our great value plans

The annual subscription price is less than a single emergency ambulance part-charge, so the Supporter Scheme offers great value.Supporter Scheme pricing table

Prices include GST

Please note that due to an increase in operating costs a small increase in Supporter Scheme fees applies from 1 December 2019.

Each Scheme membership still offers great value for money, and is still less than one emergency call out fee of $98.

Hopefully you won't need to use our ambulance service, but there are always people that do need our help. By subscribing to our Supporter Scheme, any excess funds from your subscription will help us buy new equipment and vehicles for our ambulance service, and provide essential services to your local community. If you have a question please call us on 0800 ST JOHN (0800 785 646) Monday - Friday 8:30am - 5pm and Saturday 8am - 12 pm or enquire online.
