Attention all Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) HMO members: by now, you should have received a letter from BCBS informing you of the insurance changes regarding the use of Emergency Rooms. Beginning on June 4, 2018, all patients who visit the ER for a non-life-threatening issue are subject to pay the entirety of their bill.
As a parent, there are few things worse than knowing that your child is sick or hurt. When your pediatrician’s office is closed, an urgent care center such as Integrity Urgent Care can be a much more cost-effective option than the emergency room. Urgent Care centers are open in the evenings and on weekends, and your child can be seen without an appointment.
