Hold FSERs 
Accountable

What That Means

FSERs or freestanding emergency rooms, are a relatively new business practice that leaves patients with outrageously expensive medical bills after receiving care. These greedy corporations seek to take advantage of patients when they are at their most vulnerable—when they are in an emergency. Recently, Texas began requiring emergency rooms to list their prices online, but we have found that many FSERs have neglected this new policy in favor of leaving their prices a mystery. Oftentimes FSERs charge up to 20x what an urgent care center would charge for the same services. By holding freestanding ERs accountable for their predatory actions and blatant failure to comply with current patient protection laws and regulations, we will make a better, patient-first health care system for all Texans.
