The truth is that one of the small benefits of the ACA (Obamacare) is that it requires health care insurers to reimburse all emergency medical facilities and providers on an in-network basis (i.e., use in-network deductibles, co-pays, and co-insurance rates) for all emergency medical services.
Sometimes the health care insurers attempt to avoid these ACA (or other) payment obligations and this can possibly result in billing issues for any patient. This is particularly true if the emergency medical services provider fails to properly monitor and appeal inappropriate reimbursement practices by the healthcare insurers.
We at Elite Medical Center recognize this fact and we do not let this happen. For us, expert care does not stop with medical care.
All patients who seek emergency medical care at Elite Medical Center are provided a medical screening exam, including and any stabilizing procedures or treatment without regard to ability to pay or insurance status.
Elite Medical Center is not currently contracted with CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) and cannot bill CMS for services provided to these patients. Any emergency stabilizing procedures or treatment given to these patients, including transfer to a higher level of care, will be given at no charge to the patient or to CMS.
- This facility is not a participating provider in any health benefit plan provider network. However, under the Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA/Obamacare), your health insurance company is required to process your emergency visit at in-network benefit levels.
- The physician providing medical care at this facility may bill separately from the facility for the medical care provided to you.
*Elite Medical Center follows Federal AND Nevada State EMTALA mandates. ALL patients who present to Elite Medical Center are evaluated for the presence of an emergency medical condition, and, if one exists, they will receive emergency stabilization and treatment, including transfer to a higher level of care when necessary, without regard to their ability to pay.
