2020 NEWS UPDATE – Source Rodeo Houston

In the interest of public health, the City of Houston and the Houston Health Department have ordered the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ to close. The Rodeo will respectfully and dutifully comply with the City’s order.

The Rodeo is deeply saddened; however, the safety and well-being of our guests and our community is our top priority. Out of precaution, the City has decided that this is the best course of action for our community.

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has been a fabric of this community since 1932. Having to close early is extremely difficult as guests, volunteers, exhibitors, rodeo athletes and entertainers look forward to the 20 days of the Rodeo each year.

We look forward to the 2021 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo to continue to promote agriculture, education, entertainment and Western heritage. We will provide additional information as it becomes available. Updates will be posted at rodeohouston.com/2020.

Altus™ Emergency Is At The Forefront of Patient Advocacy

Last year Altus Emergency Centers announced their bold plan to eliminate surprise bills from their billing process.

After more than six months of having implemented their revolutionary plan, their senior management team confirms that their strategy has surpassed all their expectations.

When asked to comment on how the measures to prevent surprise bills have impacted their users, Kevin Herrington, MBA, FACHE President Altus™ Emergency Centers said:

KEvin-Altus Emergency

“Patients feel more confident now when they visit our centers to receive emergency medical attention because they know they won’t have to overpay for quality treatment, have excessive wait times or receive a surprise bill in the mail afterward.”

The Law Protects Texas Patients

Starting on January 1st, 2020, Texas law protects patients with state-regulated health insurance from surprise medical bills in the event of a medical emergency.

Altus Emergency Centers applauds the lawmaker’s decision to place patient interest first; however, it’s important to note that this law only covers an estimated 16% of Texans.

The approach Altus Emergency Centers has taken, on the other hand, benefits all their patients, including servicemen and women and their families covered through TRICARE. Additionally, Medicare patients are now accepted at the Altus Baytown ER and very soon to be at Altus Lumberton Hospital.  Best of all, there are no surprise medical bills here!

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

How Has Altus Emergency Centers No Surprise Bill Strategy Impacted Patients

Patients who visit any of the Altus ER locations have always benefited from top-rated medical care and customer service. With this new strategy, patients have more personalized attention, as the doctors who treat them are now directly involved by Altus management.  Altus also oversees and has control on the billing of these professional services.

The move to partner with doctors, technicians, and nurses directly has helped reduce staff turnover, and as a result, our centers now have a more family-oriented feel, which helps reduce patient stress and create a heightened sense of wellbeing.

The most significant impact, of course, is the financial benefit for the patients. Altus renegotiated all their physician fees to help lower the cost and out of pocket expenses for all patients.

“We were concerned with the financial burden a medical emergency can pose for American families, especially those living in rural areas where the options for quality healthcare are limited. Therefore, our priority was to do everything in our power to help reduce out-of-pocket expenses without compromising the quality of our service. Today we are pleased to say we succeeded.” Kevin Herrington

For the first day, Altus Emergency Centers opened its doors to the public; their primary focus has been the patients. Patient Advocate services are at the center of their business model.

Patients with questions about their insurance plan coverage are advised by experts to ensure they receive the maximum benefits their healthcare plan offers.

Additionally, the Patient Advocate files insurance claims in the name of the customer. And thanks to Altus Emergency Centers’ in-house billing system, invoices are now easier to understand.

Altus Baytown ER is Now In-Network with Cigna!

GREAT NEWS, HELLO CIGNA!

Altus Baytown ER is Now In-Network with Cigna!

We have exciting news! As of now, Altus Baytown ER is an in-network provider for Cigna. In other words, Altus Baytown ER is Now In-Network with Cigna!

What is the Difference Between In-Network and Out-of-Network Providers?

 

Insurance companies negotiate service rates with a network of facilities to help provide better prices for their members.

The healthcare facilities that agree to offer their services at the negotiated discount rate are considered to be in-network providers.

Any hospital, or emergency room that does not have a contract with the insurance company is an out-of-network provider.

Altus Baytown ER the location is Now In-Network with Cigna!

Are In-Network Emergency Rooms Better than Out of Network ER’s?

Not necessarily. The quality of care you receive at an ER center is not dependent on them being part of a network or not.

Rather it depends on the quality of doctors, nurses, technicians, and administrative staff they have working for them as well as the diagnostic equipment they have in their facilities.

All Altus Emergency Centers are known to provide more personalized care and significantly lower wait times. Additionally, we strive to hire only the best doctors, nurses, and technicians to ensure that our patients receive the best care possible.

Moreover, we continuously invest in new technologies that provide faster, more accurate test results that help our physicians make the right diagnosis.

Pediatric to Medicare In-Network with Cigna!

Are Out-Of-Network Providers More Expensive than In-Network Providers?

In most cases, patients will have higher out-of-pocket expenses when they visit an out-of-network facility or doctor.

The big exception to the rule, of course, is Altus Emergency Centers, while not all our facilities are in-network; we offer exceptional service at considerably lower costs in all our locations compared to other out-of-network facilities.

Why Altus Emergency Centers is Different

We’ve always prided ourselves on the high quality of our care, and our patients agree, our staff always goes above and beyond the call of duty.

However, some of our patients expressed their concerns regarding their out-of-pocket expenses for the services we provided, not only did we understand we agreed that we could do better. So we set out to find a solution that worked, and we found it.

family ER care texas Altus Baytown ER is Now In-Network with Cigna!

How Doctor Fees Work

Most doctors who work for hospitals and emergency centers are not employees of the healthcare facility. They are employed as contractors, meaning they set the prices for the services they provide.

If they are not part of an insurance company’s network, it means their prices could be higher than those of in-network providers, and this will mean higher copays for the patient.

To solve this gap, Altus Emergency Centers decided to become a direct employer for all the physicians working at our centers. In simple terms we created our network, and just like insurance companies negotiate discounted rates, we did the same with our employees.

As a result, we can now provide the same high quality of care at a much lower price compared to other out-of-network facilities.

If I Have a Cigna Plan, Can I Only Go to An In-Network ER?

NO!

The law guarantees coverage & treatment for a real emergency. Regardless of the type of healthcare plan or which insurance company you work with, you can visit any ER including our multiple facilities throughout Southeast Texas.

We will process and file a claim with all major insurance companies on your behalf.

pediatric er Altus Baytown ER is Now In-Network with Cigna!

So, What Are The Benefits of Altus Baytown ER Now Being An In-Network Provider?

As we mentioned before, you will receive the best emergency care possible, with guaranteed low wait times.

Additionally, when you come to our facility in Baytown our Patient Advocate can now examine your Cigna healthcare plan in detail.

Our team of experts will explain your benefits and provide you with a general overview of where your deductible is today, what you could pay once processed through the ER, as well as the copay associated with your insurance plan.

What this does is eliminate a lot of the confusion and guesswork that is so often associated with the billing process at an out-of-network facility.

Altus Baytown ER Benefits

  • Excellent Care
  • Top-rated Doctors, Nurses, and Technicians
  • Low or No Wait Times
  • Better Service Rates
  • Clear Explanation of Benefits
  • Less Confusion During the Billing Process

Altus Emergency Centers is continuously evolving and improving our level of service. Our Altus Baytown ER facility, the preferred outpatient ER of Altus Hospital, is a clear example of how we are shaping the future of emergency care.

4th Annual Lumberton Christmas Tree Lighting

Lumberton Christmas Tree Lighting!

It was a magical night December 6th at the Lumberton Christmas Tree Lighting 2019.  We joined the community celebration surrounding the lighting of the Christmas tree at the Lumberton City Park on Hwy 241.  It was a delight for Altus Emergency to join Mr. and Mrs. Clause and all of the fun the City of Lumberton had planned by providing a Christmas scene photos for all who came.  Other activities that took place were Christmas caroling, bounce house fun for the kids, hayride, crafts and of course, yummy hot chocolate, milk and cookies.

Way to go Mayor! The City had a great Tree Lighting Ceremony last Friday! Thank you for all you do!

Our Baytown Imaging Services Expansion Include: CT Scan, X-Rays, and Ultrasound

We have furnished our imaging center with the most technologically advanced diagnostic imaging equipment to provide fast and accurate results.

  • Diagnosing Infectious Diseases
  • Diagnose Muscle Disorders
  • Evaluate Bone Fractures
  • Locate Tumors and Other Masses
  • Evaluate The Health of Blood Vessels and Other Internal Structures
  • Assess Internal Injuries and Internal Bleeding
  • Diagnose Heart Disease

X-Rays

X-Rays produce black and white images of the internal structures of the body. For the most part X-rays are used to evaluate broken bones and other skeletal problems such as the damaged caused by arthritis.

However, doctors may request X-rays for a wide range of reasons, including diagnosing:

  • Infections Including Respiratory Infections
  • Broken Bones
  • Perforations in the Stomach or Intestine
  • Diagnose Kidney, Bladder, and Gallstones

Emergency Rooms Came Through for Region During Imelda’s Chaos

Guest column—Beaumont Enterprises Brings You

Emergency Rooms Came Through for Region During Imelda’s Chaos.

By Dr. Adriano Goffi

ARTICLE SOURCE: Guest Column of the Beaumont Enterprise Newspaper

Dr. Adriano Goffi Altus ER Lumberton

Imelda’s Chaos

Tropical Storm Imelda, the seventh wettest tropical cyclone to ever hit the United States, recently reminded us that natural disasters and catastrophic events can and do strike without warning.

 

Unfortunately, Texas has faced more than its fair share over the past few years. With Imelda, even weather experts were caught by surprise when more than 43 inches of rain fell in parts of Southeast Texas.

 

Like meteorologists, us emergency room doctors learn to expect the unexpected. While doctors, nurses and other emergency medical personnel don’t know exactly what severe injuries, illnesses or health crises we will face on each of our long shifts, we do know we need to be prepared at a moment’s notice.

 

During Imelda, the massive flooding from the storm shut down access to two Beaumont-area hospitals at a time when many people were in need of emergency care.

Thankfully, Southeast Texas was able to avoid disaster of another kind because the region’s well-established independent freestanding emergency centers were able to provide life-saving care when other medical facilities couldn’t.

I can personally attest to the treacherous conditions created by Imelda. It took me more than eight hours to get to work in the midst of the storm’s wrath and was only possible because of the extraordinary acts of bravery and kindness from local volunteers who delivered essential transportation via boats and trucks to those who were stranded, or have roles like mine where missing a shift is not an option.

 

These volunteers provided similar support to many of my colleagues and together they endured all matter of flooding, rain and wind to get to the ER.

 

When we finally arrived at work, we found that not only was patient volume extremely high due to the injuries and serious impairments wrought by the storm’s dangerous effects, but our patients’ conditions were far more acute than what we see on most days.

Understandably, emotions were running high.

Even our battle-hardened head nurse was brought to tears out of concern for a woman who was on death’s door. The patient was suffering from massive internal bleeding and urgently needed a blood transfusion to save her life.

 

We were able to get an emergency supply of blood transported to our facility, completed the transfusion and got her safely transferred to a larger regional medical center.

Because of our intervention, she’s alive today.

Imelda's Chaos - Beaumont Enterprise Guest Column Dr. Adriano Goffi Altus ER Lumberton Medical Director

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

The Calm After Imelda’s Chaos

Over the past decade, Texas’ independent freestanding ERs have repeatedly stepped into the breach in times of crisis. And on a day-to-day basis, they provide essential care and save lives across Texas — to say nothing of the tens of millions of dollars these emergency care facilities provide in charity care to Texans in need every year. And yet, some still question the value and purpose of ERs outside of a hospital.

 

Recent times like Imelda illustrate that Texans and their families are better off when their access to ER care is unimpeded.

Without freestanding emergency centers to care for those in need, the death toll from Imelda would have undoubtedly been higher than five.

We are here 24 hours a day, every day of the year in conditions of all kinds. Texans should be reassured that lifesaving care like ours is never too far beyond reach.

Dr. Adriano Goffi, a Navy veteran and family medicine doctor who has worked in emergency medicine for more than a dozen years, is the medical director of the Altus Emergency Center in Lumberton. Altus is a member of the Texas Association of Freestanding Emergency Centers (TAFEC).

A huge thank you to the Beaumont Enterprise for sharing this guest column written by our Lumberton Medical Director, Dr. Adriano Goffi.

The Keys to Healthy Aging

The Keys to Healthy Aging

In honor of our recent acceptance of Medicare at Altus Baytown ER, this month of September, we celebrate Healthy Aging Month. There is no better time to re-invent yourself and start adopting better health practices.

Aging is something that affects all of us, not just the elderly. The better we take care of ourselves now, the more enjoyable our later years will be.

If you think you are too old to make some positive changes in your life, and improve your health, think again! 

Simple changes in our daily routines can provide significant benefits, no matter what age you are.

Here are some simple tips to help you live and age healthier:

Watch What You Eat and Drink

We know that poor eating habits are affecting the health, safety, and overall well-being of Americans.

 

The US Department of Health and Human Services reports that:

  • About 90% of Americans consume approximately 3,400 mg/day of sodium, well above the federal guideline of 2,300 mg/day or less.
  • Most Americans don’t eat enough vegetables, fruits, whole-grains, dairy products, and healthy oils
  • The average American diet exceeds the recommended intake levels in these four categories:
      • Calories from solid fats and sugars
      • Refined grains
      • Sodium
      • Saturated Fat

If you wish to increase your energy levels and prevent illnesses, follow a diet that is:

 

  • Low in saturated fat
  • Includes lots of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
  • Includes more oily fish
  • Has small amounts of low-fat dairy and lean meats

 

Also, remember to drink lots of water to stay hydrated and limit how much alcohol you drink.

Unhealthy eating can increase the risk of developing chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity.

If you suffer any complications from any of these illnesses, remember Altus Baytown ER is available to attend any emergency, with the added benefit of minimal wait times. 

Stay Active

Staying active through the years has many health benefits, including:

  • Helps maintain healthy bones and muscles which help maintain balance and mobility
  • It can boost your self-esteem
  • Helps you sleep better
  • Increases energy levels
  • Lowers the risk of heart disease, stroke, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, and some types of cancer

 

The World Health Organization recommends adults 65 and older do 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise per week. You don’t need to join a gym to get your workout; you could add any of these activities to your weekly routine:

  • Walking
  • Dancing
  • Gardening
  • Swimming

 

If you are over 65 and want to add some physical activity to your day, remember:

  • Pace yourself, don’t try to do too much at once
  • Choose an exercise routine that fits your current level of fitness
  • Stay hydrated
  • When possible exercise with a buddy

As a Medicare provider, Altus Baytown ERis the best option for patients 65 and older to get treatment in case of a fall or any other type of injury.

Get Checked!

The best type of medicine is prevention. Everyone, regardless of age, should get at least an annual medical checkup.

For those of you who are 65 and older, you should talk to your doctor about getting these tests:

  • Blood Pressure Screening 
  • Cholesterol Screening 
  • Colorectal Screening
  • Eye Exam
  • Hearing Test
  • Dental Exam
  • Diabetes Screening
  • Osteoporosis Screening
  • Prostate Screening
  • Mammogram
  • Pap Smear
  • Vitamin D Test
  • Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone Screening

 

It’s never too late to start making positive changes in our life. We are blessed to live in an age where medical and technological advances can give us the chance to live longer.

Always Have a Plan.  Know Where to Go In the Event of An Emergency.

To ensure you get to live a long and fulfilling life, you need to take care of yourself. However, accidents do happen, and for that, you have us.

 

Altus Baytown ER is the #1 emergency center in Baytown, with state-of-the-art medical technology, the best doctors and convenient location. We are open 24/7 every day of the year, and we accept Medicare patients.

Severe Pulmonary Disease Associated with Using E-Cigarette Products

OFFICIAL CDC HEALTH ADVISORY

Severe Pulmonary Disease Associated with Using E-Cigarette Products

official cdc health advisory

Summary

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is providing:

1) background information on the forms of e-cigarette products,

2) information on the multistate outbreak of severe pulmonary disease associated with using e-cigarette products (devices, liquids, refill pods, and cartridges), and

3) clinical features of patients with severe pulmonary disease. This health advisory also provides recommendations for clinicians, public health officials, and the public based on currently available information.

General Background

E-cigarettes typically contain nicotine, most also contain flavorings and other chemicals, and some may contain marijuana or other substances. They are known by many different names and come in many shapes, sizes, and device types. Devices may be referred to as “e-cigs,” “vapes,” “e-hookahs,” “vape pens,” “mods,” tanks, or electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS). Some e-cigarette devices resemble other tobacco products such as cigarettes; some resemble ordinary household items such as USB flash drives, pens, and flashlights; and others have unique shapes. Use of e-cigarettes is sometimes referred to as “vaping” or “juuling.” E-cigarettes used for dabbing are sometimes called “dab” pens.
E-cigarettes can contain harmful or potentially harmful substances, including nicotine, heavy metals (e.g., lead), volatile organic compounds, and cancer-causing chemicals. Additionally, some e-cigarette products are used to deliver illicit substances; may be acquired from unknown or unauthorized (i.e., “street”) sources; and may be modified for uses that could increase their potential for harm to the user. For example, some e-cigarette pods or cartridges marketed for single use can be refilled with illicit or unknown substances. In addition, some e-cigarette products are used for “dripping” or “dabbing.” Dripping involves dropping e-cigarette liquid directly onto the hot coils of an e-cigarette which can result in high concentrations of compounds (e.g., tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] and cannabinoid compounds). Dabbing involves superheating substances such as “budder”, butane hash oil (BHO), and “710” that contain high concentrations of THC and other plant compounds (e.g., cannabidiol [CBD]).

Youth, young adults, pregnant women, as well as adults who do not currently use tobacco products should not use e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes containing nicotine have the potential to help some individual adult smokers reduce their use of and transition away from cigarettes. However, e-cigarettes are not currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a quit smoking aid, and the available science is inconclusive on whether e-cigarettes are effective for quitting smoking.

Outbreak Background

As of August 27, 2019, 215 possible cases have been reported from 25 states and additional reports of pulmonary illness are under investigation. One patient (in Illinois) with a history of recent e-cigarette use was hospitalized on July 29, 2019, with severe pulmonary disease and died on August 20, 2019. Although the etiology of e-cigarette-associated pulmonary disease is undetermined, epidemiologic investigations in affected states are ongoing to better characterize the exposures, demographic, clinical, and laboratory features and behaviors of patients. All patients have reported using e-cigarette products. The exact number is currently unknown, but many patients have reported using e-cigarettes containing cannabinoid products such as THC or CBD.

Based on reports from several states, patients have experienced respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, or chest pain), and some have also experienced gastrointestinal symptoms (nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea) or non-specific constitutional symptoms (fatigue, fever, or weight loss). Symptoms typically develop over a period of days but sometimes can manifest over several weeks. Gastrointestinal symptoms sometimes preceded respiratory symptoms. Fever, tachycardia, and elevated white blood cell count have been reported in the absence of an identifiable infectious disease. Many patients have sought initial care in ambulatory settings, some with several visits, before hospital admission.

Radiologic findings have varied and are not present in all patients upon initial presentation. Bilateral pulmonary infiltrates and diffuse ground-glass opacities have been reported. Many patients required supplemental oxygen, some required assisted ventilation and oxygenation, and some were intubated. Some patients have been treated with corticosteroids with demonstrated improvement. Antimicrobial therapy alone has not consistently been associated with clinical improvement. Assessment for infectious etiologies has been completed in many patients without an identified infectious cause. Several patients from one state have been diagnosed with lipoid pneumonia based on clinical presentation and detection of lipids within bronchoalveolar lavage samples stained specifically to detect oil.

All patients have reported using e-cigarette products and the symptom onset has ranged from a few days to several weeks after e-cigarette use. Within two states, recent inhalation of cannabinoid products, THC or cannabidiol, have been reported in many of the patients. To date, no single substance or e-cigarette product has been consistently associated with illness. CDC is working closely with state health departments to facilitate collecting product specimens for testing at the U.S. FDA Forensic Chemistry Center.

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Recommendations for Clinicians

1. Report cases of severe pulmonary disease of unclear etiology and history of e-cigarette product use within the past 90 days to your state or local health department. Reporting of cases may help CDC and state health departments determine the cause or causes of these pulmonary illnesses.

2.  Ask all patients who report e-cigarette product use within the last 90 days about signs and symptoms of pulmonary illness.

3.  If e-cigarette product use is suspected as a possible etiology of a patient’s severe pulmonary disease, obtain a detailed history regarding:

    • Substance(s) used: nicotine, cannabinoids (e.g., marijuana, THC, THC concentrates, CBD, CBD oil, synthetic cannabinoids [e.g., K2 or spice], hash oil, Dank vapes), flavors, or other substances
    • Substance source(s): commercially available liquids (i.e., bottles, cartridges, or pods), homemade liquids, and re-use of old cartridges or pods with homemade or commercially bought liquids
    • Device(s) used: manufacturer; brand name; product name; model; serial number of the product, device, or e-liquid; if the device can be customized by the user; and any product modifications by the user (e.g., exposure of the atomizer or heating coil)
    • Where the product(s) were purchased
    • Method of substance use: aerosolization, dabbing, or dripping
    • Other potential cases: sharing e-cigarette products (devices, liquids, refill pods, or cartridges) with others

4.  Determine if any remaining product, including devices and liquids, are available for testing. Testing can be coordinated with the local or state health departments.

5.  Consider all possible causes of illness in patients reporting respiratory and gastrointestinal symptoms and of e-cigarette product use. Evaluate and treat for other possible causes of illness (e.g., infectious, rheumatologic, neoplastic) as clinically indicated. Consider consultation with specialists (pulmonary, infectious disease, critical care, medical toxicology) as appropriate.

6.  Clinical improvement of patients with severe pulmonary disease associated with e-cigarette use has been reported with the use of corticosteroids. The decision to use corticosteroids should be made on a case-by-case basis based on risks and benefits and the likelihood of other etiologies.

7.  Lipoid pneumonia associated with inhalation of lipids in aerosols generated by e-cigarettes has been reported based on the detection of lipid-laden alveolar macrophages obtained by bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and lipid staining (e.g., oil red O). The decision about whether to perform a BAL should be based on individual clinical circumstances.

8.  Lung biopsies have been performed on some patients. If a lung biopsy is obtained, lipid staining may be considered during pathologic examination, and is best performed on fresh tissue. Routine pathology tissue processing (including formalin-fixation and paraffin-embedding) can remove lipids. Conducting routine tissue processing and histopathologic evaluation is still important. Consider consultation with specialists in pulmonary medicine and pathology to help inform any evaluation plan.

9.  Patients who have received treatment for severe pulmonary disease related to e-cigarette product use should undergo follow-up evaluation as clinically indicated to monitor pulmonary function.

Recommendations for the Public

  1. While this investigation is ongoing, if you are concerned about these specific health risks, consider refraining from using e-cigarette products.
  2. Regardless of the ongoing investigation, anyone who uses e-cigarette products should not buy these products off the street (e.g., e-cigarette products with THC, other cannabinoids) and should not modify e-cigarette products or add any substances to these products that are not intended by the manufacturer.
  3. Regardless of the ongoing investigation, e-cigarette products should not be used by youth, young adults, pregnant women, as well as adults who do not currently use tobacco products. If you use e-cigarette products, monitor yourself for symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath, chest pain) and promptly seek medical attention if you have concerns about your health. CDC and FDA will continue to advise and alert the public as more information becomes available.
  4. Adult smokers who are attempting to quit should use evidence-based treatments, including counseling and FDA-approved medications. If you who need help quitting tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, contact your doctor.
  5. If you are concerned about harmful effects from e-cigarette products, call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.
  6. We encourage the public to submit detailed reports of any unexpected tobacco or e-cigarette-related health or product issues to the FDA via the online Safety Reporting Portal:https://www.safetyreporting.hhs.gov.

TRICARE ER Family Care – We Care for Our Military and Their Families

We Care for Our Military and Their Families

The very nature of the job of a military person means they will face daily challenges. However, no service member should ever have to worry about their healthcare needs or those of his family being met, especially during an emergency.  It shouldn’t be a challenge to find TRICARE ER Family Care.

A report by news agency Reuters explains how a study revealed how American families with military healthcare are more likely to experience difficulties with healthcare access.

If you are looking for TRICARE ER Family Care, you’ve found it!  Altus Emergency Centers has been a proud TRICARE provider for many years. We believe our brave men and women in uniform should receive the best emergency medical care possible. That is why all our locations accept TRICARE patients. 

The following are some frequently asked questions to help shed light on TRICARE ER Family Care and coverage for veterans, active military, and their families.

Does Your TRICARE Healthcare Plan Cover Emergency Care?

Yes!

TRICARE emergency care coverage includes professional and institutional charges as well as services and supplies administered or prescribed in the emergency room.

TRICARE is very clear that in the event of a medical emergency, you should call 911 and visit an ER, not an urgent care clinic.

Moreover, emergency room care does not require prior authorization. However, TRICARE Prime plan members must contact their primary care provider within 24 hours or the next business day after receiving emergency care at one of our ER centers.

What Does TRICARE Consider an Emergency?

TRICARE covers three types of medical emergencies:

 

Medical Emergency

TRICARE defines a medical emergency as the sudden and unexpected onset of an illness or injury or the worsening of a chronic condition that:

  • Is life-threatening, 
  • Could cause the loss or severe impairment of a limb or eyesight
  • Requires immediate medical attention
  • Manifests painful symptoms requiring medical care to alleviate suffering

 

These are some examples of medical emergencies covered by TRICARE:

  • Cardiac Arrest (No pulse)
  • Injuries with Severe Bleeding
  • Spinal Cord, Neck or Back injuries
  • Severe Chest Pain
  • Severe Eye Injuries
  • Broken Bone
  • Trouble Breathing

Maternity Emergency

A maternity emergency applies to any circumstance that results in a medical complication which puts the mother or baby at risk.

 

Mental Health Emergencies

TRICARE patients diagnosed with a mental disorder can visit our ER when they are thought to be a risk to themselves or others.

Emergency room care does not require prior authorization. However, if the patient is admitted to the hospital as a result of their psychiatric emergency, the incident must be reported to the regional contractor within 24 hours of admission and no more than 72 hours after admission.

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Are Pediatric Emergencies Covered?

TRICARE offers several healthcare plans some of which include benefits for family members including children.

  • TRICARE Prime: This is available to active duty and retired service members and their families
  • TRICARE Select: Active duty and retired service members and their families as well as active and non-active reserve, and retired reserve members and their families are eligible
  • TRICARE For Life: Available for beneficiaries who have Medicare Part A and B
  • TRICARE Reserve Select: Intended for members of the Selected Reserve and their families. Recipients must meet certain qualifications
  • TRICARE Retired Select: Available to qualified Retired Reserve members and their families
  • TRICARE Young Adult: This plan is for unmarried or adult children of an eligible sponsor. Beneficiaries must be at least 21 years of age and no older than 26

 

For more information on TRICARE healthcare plans, please visit: https://tricare.mil/Plans/HealthPlans

 

TRICARE members can trust their children’s emergency care to us. All our Emergency Centers have certified pediatric emergency physicians and nurses on staff 24/7 to attend pediatric emergencies. We also provide separate, dedicated pediatric examining rooms and equipment.

At Altus Emergency Centers, we strongly believe the members of our military deserve the best. We provide them the peace of mind of knowing their loved ones are safe and cared for with compassion by professionals who care. 

For this reason, we provide the best emergency care to all members of our military branches and their families.
