Insurance Coverage

understanding health insurance Coverage

Having to battle with your insurance company after an emergency only adds more stress to the situation. Our goal is to minimize that stress by ensuring your emergency is resolved quickly and efficiently without surprise billing. 

Rice Emergency Room is your personal advocate in this process by making sure that the benefits , which you pay monthly, will be honored by your insurance company.

At Rice Emergency Room, we provide fast, concierge emergency care to all members of the Houston community and Rice Village area.

State law requires your health insurance company pays your emergency room claim based on your in-network benefits. This safeguards you from having to worry about finding an in-network provider when experiencing a medical emergency.
