The nation's oldest and largest freestanding emergency room system.

How FCER works with my insurance

First Choice Emergency Room is a free-standing emergency room. We function just like a hospital based emergency room. We will accept your ER co-pay at the time of service, and emergency room claims will be submitted to your insurance carrier.

We are not currently contracted with your insurance company. However, in the state of Texas, all emergency visits are to be processed as in-network regardless of the network status. What that means is your visit will be processed under your in-network benefits. Your insurance may not process it correctly the first time but our patient accounts department will work with them to have your claims reprocessed until they are processed under your in-network emergency room benefits. We accept all major, commercial insurance carriers like, but not limited to, AETNA, BCBS, Cigna, Humana, and United Healthcare.

AETNA Patients

Beginning April 1st 2011, all visits to a First Choice Emergency Room will be processed toward your Emergency Room benefits. While FCER is no longer contracted with AETNA, you can still visit FCER and your claims will be processed and managed by our Patient Accounts Department like other carriers.
