Does Medicare Cover Emergency Room Visits?

If you are injured, suddenly come down with an illness, or have a condition that suddenly gets worse and needs immediate medical care, you may be able to get Medicare Part B to cover an emergency room visit.

When Medicare covers an emergency room visit, you would pay a copayment for the visit itself and a copayment for each hospital service you receive there. You would also pay 20% of the Medicare-approved cost for doctor services, and the Part B deductible will apply.

If you like your Original Medicare coverage but want to see if you can cover some of the out-of-pocket costs you’re responsible for, you may want to check out which Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plans are available to you. I can help you with that.
