What would you like to do?
where I live In Pa its $ 90.00 dollars As an Emergency Physician, I would tell you that one would need to know a lot more about the visit. If you mean a sore throat of a routine nature, roughly $120 for the hospital and the physicians bill would be about $90. Sound like a lot ? Bear in mind that nation wide, emergency physicians the their hospitals collect roughly 35% of billings. Care is provided to all without regard to ability to pay (despite what anyone tells you I guarantee you will find no one in this country who was turned away from an Emergency Dept due to lack of ability to pay) So your bill is for your care and that of the other 2 patients who had no funds. Kind of makes you think again about that right of all to have food, shelter and medical care when you see it that way. I mean, Burger King and Holiday Inn don't provide the food and shelter without abiltiy to pay, do they ?

Thanks for the feedback!
Please put your question in a complete question so it can be answered more easily. Do you want to know if insurance will pay for a visit to the emergency room? If so you… could put that in your question.
I'm thinking you must mean the cost of an emergency room visit. If this is the case, the cost is going to depend upon many things. Some of these things include 1) what y…ou are seen for (ear ache, chest pain, etc.) because the more things that need to be done for you make the visit more expensive. 2) what supplies are used on you during the visit. Even a bandaid is going to cost you! 3) What tests are done. A vist for something as simple as a sore throat or ear ache can cost $200. I've seen visits cost over $5000 for someone with a life threatening problem. An emergency visit can be quite costly so if you have a problem that can be taken care of by your regular doctor (the doctor you go to for shots and checkups) it may benefit you financially to do so.
I was in the emergency room last week in the Seattle Area, for severe stabbing pains in my stomach and my body was shaking and wouldn't stop in the middle of the night (my son… drove me -vs- 911 as we live about 2miles from the hospital).. here was the cost break down for 6hrs ... $2000 for the ER visit $3500 for the CAT Scan blood tests etc. the total cost from the hospital was $6500 (or over $1000 an hour) from the hospital bill I don't know if I'll receive other bills from the specific doctors etc.. and to be fair I'm on medicare + a private supplemental insurance so they may reduce the prices above. if you don't have insurance and if at all possible my advice would be to visit an Immediate care clinc (-vs- emergency room) where a doctor will see you as a walk-in usually if your having pain or something that is urgent but not life threating they will move you to the front of the line and it's much less expensive.. my son was having severe ear pain.. no insurance .. the receptionist say "probably around $350" he was like "I don't care, I'm sick" when into see the doctor had an ear infection mentioned the "no insurance" they dropped the bill to $50 visit gave some free samples of medication. lastly I would check with your State Govt to see if they offer some type of "Basic health plan" avail at affordable rates for example in WA State if you earn $10k a year, I believe you pay around $50 a month $25k about $100 you can pick one of many private insurance companies (either HMO or prefered provider) the coverage is the same regardless of what you pay... obviously many conditions (proof of income, IRS tax returns citizenship, residence etc) but the basic idea is to get people to pay a reasonable amount per month (say 10% of your income) -vs- no insurance and the state has to pickup the bill for emergency room care for public hospitals.

well sorry but this website does not have the answer to this question.sorry for ur inconvience
Depends on your insurance weather or not you have it also the hospital itself. Best thing to do is call the hospital billing department or your insurance company to find out
Depends on what procedures and tests are done. But my guess is probably in the 1000$ ranges
does medicare a cover emergency room visits?
1 consultant can visit more than twice or more but only 2 consultations are chargable, Ans by Jamma(executive,Max Healthcare)
It really would depend on the nature of the emergency visit. I will give you a few different case scenarios, as this is a really broad question. Something simple li…ke sutures, or checking a cut for example. These sorts of visits do NOT often require consultations, or other diagnostic tests, so it is usually just the consultation of the doctor this may run about 200$ to 500$ Something that is moderate such as a sprained ankle with a suspected hairline fracture. This requires an extended visit for the ER doc, likely 1 to 2 x-rays, and possibly a few lab tests. With the ER doc, it is charged for the first hour, and then for every half hour after this, the approximate value of this visit would be about $1000=3000. This would be dependant on whether or not a surgeon needs to consult with the patient. Something serious such as a patient arriving unconscious. This would require a significant amount of the ER docs time, as well as a couple of x-rays, CT scan, possible ultrasound, and then several of blood tests. Depending on what was found during the diagnostic testing, it is highly possible that there will need to be consultation with other doctors, so this would be an expensive visit. The average cost for this would range about $3,000 to 8000 dollars.
Emergency room visits are considered outpatient care and, as such, are not covered by Medicare Part A. Medicare Part A is for inpatient care while you are staying in a hospita…l. Emergency room visits and other outpatient treatment is covered under Medicare Part B. See Sources and related links for additional information.
Urgent care is specifically for those with preexisting medical conditions. If your directed to a urgent care facility they will have your history and be able to treat their pa…tients better.
No, all hospital insurance is covered by medicare Part A. You will have to pay a deductible of $1,132 and are covered for up to 60 days in the hospital. source -
Technically no, it is an outpatient visit. You are not admitted to the hospital until you go to a room or care unit.
