- Have your health insurance card with you, and know what services your insurance provides. The phone number on the back of your card will let you know of preferred facilities and providers.
- If you are transported to a hospital by ambulance, you will be charged. This is not a free service of the community.
- Length of ER visits can vary from a minimum of 2 hours, up to 6 - 8 hours. If there is an optional site, such as a walk-in clinic for non-emergencies, you might want to consider visiting them. This will allow the doctors and nurses to concentrate on the clients who have life-threatening issues. See Walk-In Clinics.
- If you do not have insurance, the visit will not be free. The hospital will bill you for your visit. Emergency room visits are very expensive. There is a hospital that will accept persons without health insurance - Metro General Hospital at Meharry, 1818 Albion Street, Nashville, TN 37208.
