it is one of the top trauma hospitals in the country . it may be a free clinic but that is only one part of the hospital. when it comes to trauma care it is the secound best hospital in houston behind herman hospital . yes it is the one they take you to when unsure about insurance. i went there after a motorcycle wreck .

Maybe they don't ask for money before the doc sees you? Try any other ER and I promise they will. I have been multiple times with my kids and my hostage. As soon as they get you in a room they ask for payment.

They will send you a bill, though.

I've heard this a ton of times. Is this because Ben Taub is one of the best in trauma but will only get you back to stable and that's it?

Its been years since my last visit. They got what ins. paid and thats it. They will start sending crazy bills. You will get bills before insurance can pay them. The bills will start getting smaller and smaller as ins. starts paying them. Med. collections dont do any real damage on your credit anyway.
