Medicare Coverage for your local FEC is Expiring
The government declared on January 30 that PHE (Public Health Emergency) would be discontinued as of May 11, 2023. Our emergency services will no longer be covered by Medicare.
What does it mean for our Medicare patients? The PHE authorized private emergency
facilities to treat Medicare patients due to the high need for emergency treatment during the pandemic. It meant that Medicare recipients could go to any hospital emergency room for treatment.
Rapid Care Emergency Room will carry on with our services. We will continue to provide emergency care for our Medicare population while welcoming private insurance plans and providing discounted pricing options.
The Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) ensures your safety by mandating that you receive a health screening if you present yourself to an emergency facility and specifically request one. Furthermore, EMTALA ensures that emergency departments will not turn away people who have a medical emergency.
Rapid Care Emergency Room wants to extend Medicare benefits to FECs permanently. Our Medicare recipients deserve equal access to high-quality emergency care. The Emergency Care Improvement Act (H.R. 1694) is a bipartisan legislation that would update the existing statute and allow Medicare beneficiaries to keep their coverage.
Legislators like to hear from their constituents when policy issues are being considered. If you, a family member, or a friend have Medicare, we urge you to contact your US House Representative and ask them to support the Emergency Care Improvement Act (H.R. 1694). Hearing from voters helps lawmakers understand what issues are relevant to voters. This is an opportunity for you to help shape policy decisions and share what is important with your legislator.
When contacting your state representative, please keep in mind the following:
- You may call, email, or mail your state
- Include your name, tell them you are a constituent in their district, and reference the legislation you support – Emergency Care Improvement Act (HR 1694).
- State whether you are a family member, friend, or Medicare
- Share positive experiences related to Exceptional Emergency Center and explain why it is important for Medicare beneficiaries to have equal access to emergency
- Ask your representative to support this legislation and make Medicare benefits permanent at FECs.
