Understanding Your ER Bill

Elite Care 24 Hour Emergency Room is a full-service ER, providing the same services as a traditional hospital ER, but without the wait. We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality emergency care to the communities we serve—and our support doesn’t end after you’re treated.

Health insurance bills and claims can be very confusing. We are here to help you understand the billing process and to assist you in correcting any errors made by your insurance company. Elite Care is committed to assisting you with any issues that may arise from your insurance carrier regarding the services that you receive.

  • Emergency services are to be paid based on your in-network coverage, regardless of Elite Care’s relationship with your insurance provider.
  • If your insurance company incorrectly processed your claim as out-of-network, contact our billing department. We will work with you to file an appeal.
  • The appeals process takes time, but it should be initiated as soon as you discover a problem. If an issue arises, contact us immediately to understand how the claim was processed; we will work with you to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.
