What Is Workers' Compensation?
Workers’ compensation is a state-funded insurance program that gives covered employees income and medical benefits if they’re injured while working. Texas employers may choose to provide their employees with this coverage. Most employers will inform you as to whether or not you’re covered under this state plan.
Workers’ compensation pays medical bills and is covered underneath the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act.

If you’d like to file or dispute a claim, call 800-252-7031, option 1, to speak with a representative with the Texas Department of Insurance.
If you have health insurance, you will receive an EOB (explanation of benefits) from your insurance company in the mail. Taking the time to be familiar with your benefits will help you make the best decisions when seeking medical care. It is important to note that the EOB is not a bill.
FAQs About Medical Costs and Insurance
- What is the difference between a hospital and freestanding emergency room?
Although the cost of freestanding emergency rooms and hospitals is comparable, freestanding emergency rooms might be of a slightly lower cost to you because of our ability to obtain certain services at a lower cost than a standard hospital.
- How many bills will I receive?
We do not bill separately for any laboratory, pathology, or radiological exams. You will receive two bills: one from an emergency room physician and a facility bill.
- Are the amounts listed on your website what I will have to pay for a service?
In many cases, the amount that our facility collects is less than the amount listed on our website. Our goal is to ensure that you have to pay as little out-of-pocket for your care as possible. Although we are subject to many legal and regulatory restrictions when it comes to patient costs, we offer programs, payment options, and discounts as much as we can.
- Why can’t a freestanding emergency care center accept Medicare?
CMS does not recognize a licensed freestanding emergency medical care center as a provider. Although we will treat patients who have these forms of insurances, we will not be able to bill that insurance policy.
Overall, our freestanding emergency center is able to see you faster than a facility ER and provide the same quality of care that you would receive in a standard emergency room. We can also turn our point of care diagnostic services around in a quicker manner than hospitals because our patients do not have to compete with other hospital departments to receive these services.
