Priority Care vs Emergency Room
Emergency room costs are difficult to quantify and the patient is blinded to costs upon entry. The standard insurance “co-pay” can be several hundred dollars. Most insurance companies pay only a percentage of the total costs or require huge deductibles.
According to recent national surveys, the average in-network cost of an emergency room visit is over $2,000 and depending on severity could reach $20,000 or more!
An average ambulance ride in Hawaii costs over $1,000, according to the Hawaii State Department of Health and the Emergency Medical Services Division of the city of Honolulu Emergency Services Department. (2013)
