What happens if you do not carry my insurance (out of network)?
Texas law requires your insurance carrier to pay for your emergency care, whether the emergency room is “in network” or “out of network.” According to Texas Guidelines, all insurance carriers are required to pay in-network benefits for any member presenting for emergency medical treatment. In fact, it’s the law that you must be reimbursed by your insurance carrier for your emergency room visit. The state of Texas empowers you to use “a prudent lay person standard” in considering what constitutes an emergency.
What if I’m currently experiencing problems with my insurance company?
If your insurance company refuses payment for your emergency room visit, you can file a grievance with the Texas Department of Insurance. State law requires patients to be reimbursed for emergency room visits by their insurance carrier.
