A Saskatchewan man who is paying off a 12-hundred dollar ambulance bill says he would risk death over financial hardship if he needed another ride. Darrell Meck says he is paying off the bill in 250 dollar instalments to cover a hospital transfer from Esterhazy to Regina. Meck, who has needed multiple ambulance trips for heart problems, says he has private insurance which will partially reimburse him. (The Opposition NDP raised Meck's case in question period as an example of why policies on ambulance fees should change.)
