Exceptional Emergency Centers Now Accepting Medicare

Exceptional Emergency Centers Now Accepting Medicare

During this state of National emergency Exceptional Emergency Centers are now allowed to accept Medicare insurance for all eligible beneficiaries.

(Texas, USA) – In April, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced that independent, freestanding ERs in Texas can be recognized health care providers that are eligible for reimbursement for treating Medicare patients during the coronavirus pandemic.

“We are excited for Medicare plan holders throughout Texas and we look forward to providing them with the best ER care in the state.”, said Bruce McVeigh, Chief Operating Officer. “Being allowed to expand our ability to care for more people is a win for everybody.”

Exceptional Emergency Centers have always treated Medicare patients in need of emergency care regardless of their ability to pay, but now will be able to see an increased number of patients with Medicare insurance.  Our board-certified doctors and nurses are up to the task of treating more patients while continuing to provide little to no wait times for patients.

“When patients have more choices of where to go for their ER needs, they can pick the best option and not have to worry if their Medicare plan would cover them.” said McVeigh, “We are confident Exceptional ER is the best choice for them and their families.”

Exceptional Emergency Centers are located across Texas, in Amarillo, Lubbock, Fort Worth, Garland, Livingston, Harlingen, Brownsville, Beaumont, Port Arthur, Orange, and Tyler.  The new CMS guidance will allow Exceptional Emergency Centers to serve even more people in our communities.

COVID-19 TESTING UPDATE:

The Exceptional Emergency Room staff and physicians care about you and your loved ones. We are here 24/7 for all your emergency care needs.

  1. If you are experiencing fever, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, weakness, numbness, sensory loss, or any other emergent medical problems, please call 911 or seek medical care immediately at your nearest Emergency Room.
  2. To provide the highest quality emergency medical care to our communities, we are directing all routine COVID testing to outpatient community resources.
  3. Testing through local resources, including your primary care doctor, urgent care, walk-in clinic, or local health department, is appropriate under the following circumstances:
    1. If you have been exposed to a person known to have COVID, and you do not have symptoms, we recommend that you self-quarantine at home and seek testing 4-5 days after exposure. It often takes this long for the infection to be detected by routine lab testing.
    2. If you have no symptoms or very mild symptoms, outpatient testing is also typically appropriate.
    3. Please follow this link for local COVID testing resources.
  4. If you have tested negative, you should still self-quarantine for 14 days from the day of suspected exposure as it can take anywhere from 2-14 days to come down with symptoms of this infection.
  5. Please kindly limit your phone time with our Emergency Rooms as the phone lines are needed to communicate with other health care entities and to provide patients their test results. Thank you for your understanding during this trying time.
