ER Centers of America, Inc. (ERCA) is an emergency room licensed by the State of Texas (License # 160020). Like all emergency rooms, ERCA provides medical care for both emergency and urgent medical conditions.
Therefore, we cannot discuss a patient’s ability to pay for treatment prior to the patient being evaluated by the doctor on duty; and, the doctor’s determination that the patient is not in danger of their life, limb, or the viability of an unborn fetus.
By law, all emergency medical treatment including the medical screening exam to determine if you are having an emergency medical condition, is considered an in-network expense. Your insurance company is required to pay benefits according to your plan’s in-network emergency benefits, which may include both co-payments and deductibles. We are happy to file a claim with your insurance company on your behalf. Occasionally your insurance may process your claim incorrectly the first time around, but our billing department will work with them to have your claims reprocessed until they are processed under your in-network emergency room benefits.
We accept all major, commercial insurance carriers like, but not limited to, AETNA, BCBS, Cigna, Humana, and United Healthcare.
Following your medical screening, our staff will be happy to discuss with you your insurance and other financial considerations. Any information we provide regarding your insurance benefits are only an estimate. Only your insurance company can provide your actual benefit information.
