The OneShare Health Membership Guidebook states Emergency Room Services provide stabilization or initiation of treatment of a medical emergency for Life-Threatening or Life-Altering conditions; they are provided on an Outpatient basis at a Hospital.
OneShare Health defines a Life-Threatening or Life-Altering medical condition as follows:
A condition which, if not immediately in receipt of medical treatment, has a high likelihood of causing death or causing major irreversible bodily harm (including, for example, loss of arm, leg, hand or foot; loss of sight or hearing; paralysis, or loss of brain function). The following are key signs and symptoms of Life-Threatening Emergencies: respiratory distress or cessation of breathing; severe chest pains; shock; uncontrolled bleeding; choking; poisoning; prolonged unconsciousness; severe burns; any complaint or observation which indicates head or spinal cord injury. The following are examples of Life-Altering Emergencies: broken bones; visible bones; or dismemberment.
When is an Emergency Room Visit the best course of action:
An Emergency Room Visit is appropriate* if you or a loved one is experiencing any of the following: extreme chest pain or difficulty breathing; head injuries; seizures; severe cuts or burns; sudden dizziness or numbness; severe allergic reactions, and loss of vision.
In the event you or a loved one experiences a Life-Threatening or Life-Altering medical emergency, OneShare Health recommends that you receive treatment for said condition in an Emergency Room Facility.
Please note, if the Member is at the Hospital for 24 hours or more, ER will be considered a Hospitalization and the Visit Fee will apply to the Member’s ISA.
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing."
1 Thessalonians 5:11 (ESV)
