Emergency Room Care
Emergency services you get in an emergency room at a hospital.
♦ Not to be confused with an urgent care facility.
It is important to understand that most insurance plans are now shifting emergency room charges to the deductible first. If you have a plan with a large deductible this could be a financial disaster.
Most insurers are also changing the wording in their plans to require a visit to an emergency room to be a "true" emergency.
