Insurance and cost of visit
Most emergency visits to the GYN Emergent Care Center are covered by insurance. To ensure that your emergency visit is completely covered by your insurance, we encourage you to become familiar with your insurance plan or to call your insurance directly to understand your benefits.
After you are done with the triage process and once our team knows what needs to be done, our patient coordinator will collect your insurance information. She will verify your benefits and, depending on your insurance, a payment in the form of your co-insurance, deductible, and/or a copay may apply. Usually, the ER copay amount is noted on the back of your insurance card. She will also let you know if any other charges apply to your visit. Co-pays are collected at time of visit.
