Just wondering, no issue here but I hear a lot of Mom's here bring their children to the ER instead of the Pediatrician (non-life threatening emergencies of course). I am wondering why? Is the cost less to go to the ER than the Ped. even if you have no insurance? We have insurance & the charge for an ER visit is $50 even with insurance. The co-pay for the Ped. is $20. We were in a gap a few years back & without insurance a Ped. visit cost $50. What is the cost for you ER vs. Pediatrician?
