EMTALA (Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act) -- In 1986, Congress enacted the Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA) to ensure public access to emergency services regardless of ability to pay.

IT’S THE LAW!  (English Language)

If you have a medical emergency or are in labor, even if you cannot pay or do not have medical insurance or you are not entitled to Medicare or Medicaid, you have the right to receive, within the capabilities of this hospital’s staff and facilities:

  § An appropriate medical screening examination
  § Necessary stabilizing treatment (including treatment for an unborn child) and, if necessary
  § An appropriate transfer to another facility. 

This hospital does participate in the Medicaid program.

 

C`EST LA LOI!  (French Language)

Si vous avez une urgence médicale ou avez commencé le travail d`accouchement, même si vous ne pouvez pas payer ou n`êtes pas couvert(e) par une assurance médicale ou n`êtes pas éligible pour Medicare ou Medicaid, vous avez droit, dans les limites de la capacité du personnel et de l`équipement de cet hôpital, à:    

  § Un examen médical approprié
  § Un traitement de stabilisation nécessaire (y compris le traitement pour bébé non encore né) et, si besoin est, 
  § Un transfert approprié auprès d`un autre établissement.  

Cet hôpital participe au programme Medicaid.
