We Are Your Advocates

The level of care we bring at Excel ER Odessa doesn’t end when patients leave our facility. Our staff works closely with you to understand billing, insurance options, and costs. We strive to create an easy, stress-free, and quick process to ensure more time for your busy life and family.

You will appreciate the transparency and easiness of the billing process we’ve created at our facility.

Contact us online or call us at (903) 500-7321 for additional information about our billing process.

Billing Process

We are not providers in any health benefit plan provider network, by state law however, emergent medical conditions require insurance carriers to process your ER visit at in-network benefits levels (see “Know Your Rights” section).

After your appointment, our billing department will help in processing information with your insurance company. One claim will be from the physician who treated you and the second will be for where you were seen. On-site services received at our facility will also be included in the charge.

Know Your Rights

The Texas Department of Insurance Code, Section 1301.155 requires all insurance companies to pay ER facilities “at the insured’s in-network benefit level” (i.e., use in-network deductibles, co-pays, and co-insurance rates) for all emergency services.

No person can be penalized for receiving treatment at a Freestanding ER due to the implementation of emergency care being recognized as an essential healthcare benefit by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Insurance Coverage

Currently, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) does not recognize Freestanding Emergency Departments. This means we cannot accept Medicare, Medicaid, or Tricare at this time.

We are working with the Texas Association of Freestanding Emergency Centers (TAFEC) to change this status.

Understand Your Charges and Insurance Policies

As a freestanding ER facility, we are always transparent in helping you understand all and any costs related to the services you and your family receive. Our staff members are knowledgeable and will assist you with any financial questions you may have. We recommend contacting your insurance provider (if insured) to know what your policy covers for ER care.

A list of our insured charges can be found on this link. You may also visit our FAQ page for additional information.
