Surprise! Did You See That Medical Bill Coming?

No surprise bills at Emergency One Urgent CareDo you know someone who has experienced the following scenario? You twist your ankle on the weekend, and the doctors are all closed. You find a hospital ER in your network and you’re off to the emergency room.

Months later, two bills arrive. One is from the out-of-network radiologist who read the X-rays and the other is from the out-of-network ER doctor who treated you (even though the facility was in-network). Now you get whacked with a $1,500 bill. How could that be? The copay was paid and everything was done correctly.

Did you know that 22% of patients visiting in-network hospitals receive an out-of-network service? The New England Journal of Medicine examined this phenomena and their research indicated that right here in the Hudson Valley, we experience surprise bills between 20% to 30% of the time.

With Emergency One, you have no surprises. If Emergency One is in-network under your plan, then so are all of our doctors. Don’t have insurance or don’t want to use your high deductible plan?
