An ER Must Bill In-Network Same as Hospital ER
In other words, in Freestanding vs. Hospital ER, the Billing is the Same!
At Prestige ER, we are committed to helping patients understand their rights and emergency healthcare coverage and costs.
The Law Protects Your Rights as a Patient
Federal and state laws are unambiguous regarding protecting your right to receive emergency medical care at the same price, no matter if the facility is in or out-of-network.
The No Surprises Act enacted in 2022 protects anyone with a private insurance plan from receiving a surprise or balance bill when they receive emergency services from an out-of-network facility or doctor.
The law effectively bans insurance companies from denying you coverage or having you pay extra for emergency services received at an out-of-network ER.
Another way the law protects you is through the Prudent Layperson Standard. The standard requires insurance companies to provide emergency care coverage based on initial symptoms, not the final diagnosis.
Therefore, if you feel your symptoms are severe enough and warrant emergency medical care, your insurance plan carrier cannot deny you coverage, even if the final diagnosis is a less urgent condition.
Hospital ER vs. Free Standing ER – The Cost Is The Same To You!
Are you concerned about paying more to visit a more convenient Free Standing ER? Don’t worry; thanks to the No Surprise Act, it’s all the same billing-wise.
In-network, out-of-network, in the end, it’s all the same cost to you. The real difference is that in an independent ER, you enjoy access to personalized, fast, quality care. So why endure agonizing moments waiting in line for care in a hospital ER when you can come to Prestige ER?
We’re the best ER near you! We bill in-network with CIGNA and Blue Cross Blue Shield. At Prestige ER, we strongly advocate for Patient’s Rights to the Best Medical Care.
If you have the slightest doubt that you may need ER care, remember that we offer FREE MEDICAL SCREENING.
