Guidelines for Texas Emergency Rooms
According to Texas law, insurance companies must cover emergency medical treatment for their members, even if the facility is considered "out-of-network." You have the right to use the "prudent layperson standard" when determining if you have a medical emergency. Emergency care is defined as care for conditions that a person with average medical knowledge would consider to be a serious threat to their health if not treated immediately. Your insurance must reimburse you for emergency treatment, and if they refuse, you can file a complaint with the Texas Department of Insurance. Freestanding emergency centers must provide medical screening and stabilization patients regardless of their ability to pay.
