StateEmergency.org is an advocacy coalition composed of PATIENTS, PHYSICIANS, EMPLOYERS, and healthcare PROVIDERS who have united to stand against health insurance companies and their unethical, systemic practice of underpaying the claims they are legally obligated to pay for emergency medical services.
Now the big insurance lobby has targeted the State of Texas to change laws, pay less for emergency claims, increase their profits, and reduce our access to care. As if increasing premiums, skyrocketing deductibles, and shrinking access to providers isn’t enough — now their record profits will come at the expense of the patients, employers, physicians, and providers who properly TAKE ACTION when an emergency occurs.
Without fair, transparent and timely compensation for emergency services (according to current law), access to emergency care in Texas will suffer along with every Texan who needs it.
THE EMERGENCY IS REAL — BUT THE SOLUTION IS SIMPLE
