Re: How to Minimize Your Emergency Care Expenses

Thanks very much for this important and useful post. I have a question about ambulance service. If I call 911 from my home, the responder will be the EMS service of my local fire department, not a private ambulance service. Will the fire department charges for transport to a local hospital be simil...

How to Minimize Your Emergency Care Expenses

About once a month or so we have someone start a thread about their recent visit to an emergency department. The post usually revolves around the bill being surprisingly high. They all kind of end up the same way. I get lots of PMs on the forum asking similar questions. Since this is a relatively co...

Did you really need the ER? Why not an UC? Or nothing? Some part of this is using healthcare efficiently.
The OP went to the UC and was redirected to the ED. So yes, the OP needed it. Thankfully the OP didn't have the feared life-threatening condition and was able to go home safely afterward.
