Frequently Asked Questions

A freestanding ER (emergency room) is a medical facility that offers emergency medical services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is independent of a hospital (although it may be owned by one), and is regulated and licensed by the state. A freestanding ER, as its name implies, is not physically connected to a hospital.

Typically, freestanding ERs are placed in locations convenient for patients and offer shorter wait times than traditional ERs.

Urgent care facilities are equipped to handle only minor or routine medical issues. In many states, they are not regulated or licensed, and you may see a nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant rather than a doctor. Many urgent care facilities do not offer onsite radiology or laboratory services. Clinical capabilities may differ between facilities and services may be limited to specific hours of operation.

A freestanding ER is equipped to treat any and all adult and pediatric medical emergencies. It has onsite radiology and laboratory services. A radiologist is available to read X-rays and other images immediately. By law, a freestanding ER must be staffed with board-certified physicians.

All commercially insured patients receive emergency services as out of network services. State and Federal law prohibit insurance carriers from making you pay extra for copays, co-insurance, or deductibles for emergency room service. Every emergency room is considered out of network.

All major private insurance companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Aetna, Humana, United Healthcare, and others will be processed as out of network levels. However, Texas state law requires your insurance company to cover your emergency visit as in-network benefit levels. We do participate in Medicare and Tricare. We do not participate in Medicaid.

You are only responsible for the copay or co-insurance required by your insurance provider.

If you don’t have insurance or do not wish to use it, we offer a discount when payment is made in full at the time of service. Also, we accept all major credit cards, including Mastercard, Visa, Discover, and American Express.

If you cannot pay for services in full, we can discuss payment plan options.
