The Medical Center of Aurora ER Level Charges

When a patient presents in our Emergency Room, our first priority is providing the necessary medical screening examination and stabilizing care without delay for the patient's emergency medical condition regardless of a patient's ability to pay. Emergency care is not conditioned on financial considerations. Once you have received a medical screening examination and stabilizing care has begun, you may want to discuss your care plan and the estimated cost of that Emergency Room care.

Emergency Room charges are based on the level of emergency care provided to our patients at The Medical Center of Aurora, Centennial Hospital and Saddle Rock ER. Our Emergency Room relies on a scale called the emergency management billing scale to rate a patient's level of acuity. The levels, with level 1 representing basic emergency care to level 5 representing an immediate life-threatening condition, reflect the type of accommodations needed, the staff and resources required, the intensity of care and the amount of time needed to provide emergency and stabilizing care.

The following charges do not include fees for medication, supplies, additional procedures that may be required for emergency or stabilizing care or imaging services such as CT scan, an X­ ray, or a MRI. The charges listed below also do not include fees for Emergency Room physicians, who will bill separately for their services.

  • Level 1: $949.26
  • Level 2: $2,307.97
  • Level 3: $5,242.16
  • Level 4: $8,784.16
  • Level 5: $17,578.24
