NEIGHBORHOOD EMERGENCY CENTERS

WHEN TO USE YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD EMERGENCY CENTER:

Covenant Health is proud to offer another option to our local community that offers emergency care services for non-critical or life-threatening conditions. We now have two neighborhood Emergency Centers that have board-certified doctors who are experts at treating immediate care needs 24 hours a day. And, if your condition does require you or a loved one to be transferred to a local hospital, we can transfer you to a Convenant Health Emergency Room hospital for more critical conditions. Best of all, unlike other free-standing Emergency Services that have popped up recently, the Covenant Health Emergency Centers accept most major health insurance plans - so you can focus on getting better and not worrying about the bill.

INSURANCE ACCEPTED

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY INSURANCE IS ACCEPTED?

Covenant Medical Group accepts most major insurance plans. If you have an HMO insurance plan, it's important for you to select a primary care physician that ensures you have access to the Covenant Health network of hospitals to receive expert care should you need it. To see all of the Covenant Medical Group physicians view our online directory. It's a good idea to check with your insurance provider by calling the telephone number on the back of your insurance ID card to confirm your primary care provider or specialists are in your network. If your insurance has changed recently, be sure to update your physician's office of any changes to ensure accurate billing.
