Understanding your bill and how your insurance reimburses you for emergency room visits. The gross charge relates to the price that is billed to all patients, regardless of insurance coverage. Final gross charges will be based on many factors, such as the time spent in our facility, specific equipment and supplies used, additional tests required by the physician, and/or any special care or unexpected conditions or complications.

It is important to know that in Texas, quick action can save lives in the event of a medical emergency. That is why it is imperative that consumers know all of their emergency care options before an emergency, so they make the right decision and receive the best possible care. This includes considering the location, level of service, and expected costs of medical care.
As more and more healthcare options become available for patients, it is important that we make you aware of the distinctions.
