Know your care options before you go

Before you wait for hours in the emergency room (ER) and end up with a sizable bill, there might be options that save you money. In fact, you could save up to $1,500 by choosing an alternative.*

Freestanding ERs and neighborhood hospitals

Many people have been surprised by their bill after visiting a freestanding emergency room or neighborhood hospital. These types of facilities bill at ER rates (or higher) and can be $1,500 or more than an urgent care center. Neither located in nor attached to a hospital, these facilities don’t offer all of the critical services of a hospital ER and do not have the ability to admit patients.

Ask before you enter:

  • Is this an urgent care center or ER?
  • Is this facility a network provider?

These facilities** are currently NOT contracted with your health plan:

The ER isn't your only option

When you need care, call your primary care provider (PCP) or family doctor first. Your PCP has easy access to your records, knows the bigger picture of your health, and may offer same-day appointments. If your PCP isn't available, it's important to know you still have other options.

Compare your choices

Comparing your options is the best way to get care that’s right for you and your budget. No appointment needed (unless you are seeing your PCP or specialist).
