Per Texas Senate Bill 425, all FEMC facilities are required to post the following information.
The facility is a freestanding emergency medical facility.
The facility charges rates comparable to a hospital emergency room and may charge a facility fee.
A facility or a physician providing medical care at the facility may not be a participating provider in the patient’s health benefit plan provider network.
A physician providing medical care at the facility may bill separately from the facility for the medical care provided to a patient.
The facility is not a participating provider in any health benefit plan provider network. However, by state law your health insurance company is required to process your ER visit at in-network benefit levels.
