Understanding Your Health Insurance
Medical emergencies are one of the major stressors in life and having to battle with your insurance company afterwards only adds more stress. Our goal is to minimize that stress by ensuring your emergency is resolved quickly and efficiently. Kingwood Emergency Hospital is your personal advocate in this process by making sure that the benefits for which you pay monthly will be honored by your insurance company.
At Kingwood Emergency Hospital , we provide fast, concierge emergency care to all members of the Kingwood community and surrounding areas. State law requires your health insurance company pays your emergency room claim based on your in-network benefits. This safeguards you from having to worry about finding an in-network provider when experiencing a medical emergency. Insurance Code law can be found here.
We welcome all private insurance plans
Kingwood Emergency Hospital is not a registered Medicaid provider. Patients without insurance will have the opportunity to pay at the time of service based on prompt-pay cash rates. In compliance with state and federal law, all patients who present to Kingwood Emergency Hospital with a potential emergency medical condition will receive a medical screening evaluation regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay.
While our facility is not a participating provider with any health benefit plans, we do work with all private insurance plans. This enables us to coordinate directly with your insurance provider, ensuring that your visit is processed at an in-network level.
Kingwood Emergency Hospital has never and will never balance bill or surprise bill!
