Austin Emergency Center is a licensed freestanding emergency medical care facility that operates similarly to a hospital-based emergency room. We welcome all private insurance plans. While we may be considered an out-of-network provider, state and federal laws require insurance carriers to pay in-network benefits for emergency medical treatment.
You can use a prudent layperson’s standard to determine if your situation qualifies as an emergency. It’s important to review your insurance policy to understand your co-pays, deductibles, co-insurance, and other financial responsibilities.
We cannot bill Medicare, Medicaid, or Tricare at our facility due to federal regulations. However, we will always provide treatment in life-threatening situations, regardless of the ability to pay.
If you have any questions about insurance or received documents, please contact your insurance company or reach out to our billing team at 1-800-417-0740.
