Memorial’s new policy on ER visits

You may want to think twice come November 1st if you are considering visiting a local emergency room owned and operated by Memorial.
Starting November 1st, patients determined to have conditions that are not medical emergencies will be required to pay their insurance co-pay or pay a $200 deposit toward the cost of care for non-urgent care in the emergency room.
Those with non-urgent medical issues will be steered to one of Memorial’s walk in clinics for care.
This was just announced by Memorial today in an effort to relieve congestion and wait times in its emergency rooms in South Mississippi.
