How much is the total cost for an emergency visit?

No one is able to tell you the total cost of an emergency call, there are simply too many variables. I can give you some average costs but remember average cost communicates there some patients are above the average and some are below. The average cost of most patients treated as an outpatient is $300 to $400. The average cost for patients required to be hospitalized is $1000- $1500.00. As always at the time of the emergency examination, a treatment plan of the expected cost may be provided.
