All insurance carriers are required by state and federal law to pay in network benefits for any member needing emergency medical treatment. We are an out of network provider, but we work with our patients to assure the best possible reimbursement from their carrier.
If you do not have insurance and would like to pay out-of-pocket, we can treat you - we have a simple fee-for-service plan. We accept all major credit cards and cash.
Because CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) does not yet recognize Freestanding Emergency Departments, Medicare or Medicaid do not reimburse for services at ER Now at this time.
