Mississippi hospital will charge $200 upfront fee for nonurgent ED visits

From Becker’s:

Beginning Nov. 1, Memorial Hospital at Gulfport (Miss.) will ask nonurgent patients who present at the hospital’s emergency department to visit a walk-in clinic instead. Nonurgent patients who insist on receiving care in the hospital’s ED will be required to pay their insurance copay or a $200 deposit toward the cost of their care before receiving treatment.
