CEPU Emergency Ambulance Transport Benefit

The CEPU provides its members with a benefit to assist with ambulance transport costs to a hospital in an emergency. This benefit is available to all financial members of the Union subject to terms and conditions.

It is similar to ambulance-only coverage that health insurers provide for around $50 a year for single and $80 a year for families. However, we must limit claims as Union members’ funds are actually used for funding this benefit for members and their families who are in need of assistance.

Members should familiarise themselves with the the terms and conditions that apply to this benefit which can be accessed by clicking here:
