Our Billing Manifesto

Memorial Village ER participates with private insurance plans but is not able to accept Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare, or CHIPS. We also accept out-of-pocket payment in the form of cash, checks or credit cards.

THE TRUTH ABOUT EMERGENCY ROOM BILLING:

Insurance companies MUST pay for your medically necessary emergency visits as long as you have emergency room coverage in your health insurance plan.

Your emergency visit at Memorial Village Emergency Room is to be paid based on your in-network level of benefits, regardless of our relationship with your insurance company.  This safeguards you so you are not searching for an in-network provider when you need care now.  Information on the Insurance Code Law that mandates a patient only being billed at their in-network benefit level can be found here:

(we use the Patient Protections law)

Our Care Mission

The care that Memorial Village Emergency Centers provides does not end when you leave the ER. Too many hospitals stick patients with huge bills to pay while they recuperate. As part of our pledge to offer complete care, we hold ourselves accountable to the following billing manifesto:

  • We pride ourselves on having SIMPLIFIED, TRANSPARENT and FAIR billing practices. We believe in flexible billing. We will treat you as a patient in need of medical care above all else, and we proudly have a NO WAIT-NO WORRY policy for our patients.
  • If you are UNINSURED, we offer competitive self-pay rates that are significantly less than Hospital ER bills.
  • If you have a HIGH DEDUCTIBLE, we will work with you and offer options to keep your medical costs as low as possible.
  • We embrace fair and transparent compensation. We want nothing more than to provide exceptional healthcare with timely, accurate, and fair billing. WE CARE DEEPLY ABOUT YOUR HEALTH AND YOUR WALLET.
  • We feed off the positive experiences of our current and past patients. We will be responsible for our promises. WE WILL SHOW THE WORLD what transparent and fair billing practices look like.
