Working with Your Insurance

Five Star ER is a freestanding 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 participate in a wide range of insurance plans and we’re ready to help.
Insurance Plans
In the state of Texas, all emergency room visits are to be processed as in-network regardless of the network status. Your visit to Five Star ER will be processed under your in-network benefits. We participate in all major, commercial insurance carriers. However, please contact your insurance provider for specifics of your emergency room coverage.
Because the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services does not yet recognize independent freestanding emergency departments, Five Star ER does not participate in Medicare, Medicaid or Tricare.
