NO SURPRISE BILLING

Your emergency medical care should be covered at In-Network levels by law, regardless of the contracted status of the facility you seek care at. Surprise bills are a result of private insurers choosing to deny coverage of your emergency room visit. This can result in inflated patient financial responsibility.

Texas Emergency Care Center will never send you a surprise bill. We take great care to review each claim and ensure that your insurer processes the claim correctly.

Texas Emergency Care Center is an out-of-network provider for all health benefit plans. However Federal law requires insurance companies to process your ER visit at the in-network level and guarantee coverage in a true emergency.
