Billing and Insurance

Your bill may be different from other medical bills you may have received from hospitals or physicians. It’s important to note that Tucson ER & Hospital is a freestanding micro-hospital.
We are currently unable to accept government insurance plans; which includes Medicaid, Medicare, Tri-Care, and AHCCCS plans.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING INSURANCE
Our Billing Policy
Your ER co-pay will be collected at the time of your visit. We will then bill your insurance company for the policy’s emergency room benefits. There will be two different claims mailed to your insurance company: the facility bill and the physician bill. If you have any questions concerning your bill please contact our Billing Department, Tyvan Billing at 713-357-2535.
Tucson ER & Hospital is classified as out-of-network with many insurance companies; however, Tucson ER & Hospital does honor all in-network deductibles and benefits.
Are We "In-Network"?
The state of Arizona empowers patients to use a standard called the prudent layperson standard when determining what constitutes as an emergency.
A ‘prudent layperson’ is defined as a person without medical training who exercises those qualities of attention, knowledge, intelligence and judgment which society requires of its members for the protection of their own interest and the interests of others.
How Does Worker's Comp Work?
Workers’ compensation pays medical bills and is covered underneath the Arizona Workers Compensation Law (Title 23, Chapter 6).
