STAT Specialty Hospital now offers outpatient services at our Laredo and Del Rio locations. Adopting the same successful concept from our freestanding ERs, completing your medical tests and procedures in a timely manner is our main focus and goal! Time is valuable to all our patients and we understand the importance of making it easier and faster for you. No more having to wait hours upon hours for a test to be completed or acquiring your results.
At Stat Specialty Hospital we are simplifying the outpatient process for you. We are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We can see you anytime, day or night for on-site testing in our professional and comfortable hospital setting.
If your test is covered under your insurance (most private insurance carriers require pre-authorization before testing) we can see you the same day.
How our outpatient service works
We ask that your physician simply fill out the order form and fax it to our facility (956-284-2522) via a secured fax system. Upon receipt and review of the order, our patient services manager will immediately reach out to the physician if there are any questions. Our team will then quickly contact the Private Insurance Company and begin the pre-authorization process. Once pre-authorization is confirmed, we will immediately reach out to you and inform you of the approval.
That’s it! Then you come in — after school, after work, on the weekend; whenever it’s convenient for YOU…and to take your medical test.
More on insurance
With the high cost of healthcare, coupled with the rapid growth of high co-pays and high deductible health plans, we understand that patients are shopping to find affordable imaging and laboratory services.
Many Private Insurance Companies vary on the approval of any testing that is deemed non-emergent. At STAT Specialty Hospital, patients may opt to choose a self-pay plan which may come at a lower cost. Affordable self-pay rates can significantly reduce your out of pocket costs and eliminate any need to wait for insurance approvals.
(Self-pay pricing will be discussed individually with each patient in person)
