Emergency care fee is an insurance coverage system based on the classification between emergency and general patients by the Ministry of Health and Welfare. Non-emergency patients shall be responsible for all emergency care fee while 50% of the fees will be covered for emergency patients.
There are many complaints of patients using emergency room on distinction between emergency symptoms and emergency corresponding symptoms.
However the standard is not set by the Hospital, but guided by law. As emergency care fee applies to the point of time when a doctor initiates care, a patient who leaves in the middle of the practice shall be responsible for the fee.
In addition, there are many misunderstandings on the burden of emergency care fees. The patients with emergency or corresponding symptoms shall still be responsible for the 50% of the fee. (not fully covered)
