- Hey, it’s Lauren Kelly, MIX 96.5 with Dr. Trujillo, from Frontline ER, with this week’s Medical Minute. Okay, Doctor, with more and more of these facilities popping up, will that cause people coming in for care a higher insurance premium?
- Dr. Trujillo 00:13
- No, because premiums, regardless of the emergency department you’re using, is always going to be based on the global healthcare policies of an insurance premium. So the answer is short, no.
- Lauren Kelly 00:24
- So at Frontline ER, do I need to worry about my insurance being a network?
- Dr. Trujillo 00:29
- Fortunately, in the state of Texas, you do not because in the state of Texas there is legislature that was passed, approximately seven or eight years ago, which protects the Texans. And their insurance is considered in-network for any emergency room, any place in the state of Texas. So you’re in-network at all times.
