When you visit the emergency room, you interact with many different people: check-in registrars, nurses, transporters, technicians, emergency physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and other specialists. Most staff members are employed by the hospital, but the emergency physicians and other specialists are employed by private practices. Because of this, you will receive a bill from both the hospital and Pegasus Emergency Group. You may also receive additional bills, depending on what x-rays or tests are required to properly treat you.
Pegasus Emergency Group utilizes the services of Synergistic Systems, a medical billing firm. For billing questions regarding your visit to Hunterdon Medical Center Emergency Department, call Jennifer at 1.800.701.0227. For billing questions regarding your visit to Meadowlands Hospital Emergency Department, call Alma at 1.800.701.0227.
You may also contact Pegasus Emergency Group’s administrative office at 908.237.5420 with questions or concerns.
Pegasus Emergency Group utilizes the skills and talents of both board-certified emergency physicians and mid-level providers. Mid-level providers are specially trained and licensed nurse practitioners and physician assistants who work closely with and under the direct supervision of the attending emergency physician. Our exceptional mid-levels specialize in routine emergency care, such as laceration and orthopedic treatment. If, at any time during your visit, you wish to see or speak with the emergency physician directly, please feel free to ask.
If you ask for your visit record while you are still in the emergency room, a nurse will have you sign a Release of Medical Records form. Once the form is signed, copies of your laboratory results and other pertinent information will be copied and given to you at discharge. You can also request a copy of imaging results. The images will be burned to a disc for you to hand-carry to your follow-up physician.
If you would like a copy of your medical record after being discharged, call the main hospital number and request the medical records department. They can assist you with obtaining your records at that point.
Pegasus Emergency Group physicians are all board certified in emergency medicine and are trained and skilled in many medical disciplines. There are few cases when specialist care is required. If the emergency physician feels that your case requires a specialist, one will be contacted to assess you and advise in your treatment. If our physician or mid-level determines that you will need to be admitted into the hospital, a specialist, hospitalist or your primary care physician will be contacted to care for you during your hospital stay.
Appearance and scar formation in routine lacerations are comparable, regardless of whether the repair is made by an emergency physician, mid-level provider or plastic surgeon. It is only in extremely complex cases that the training of a plastic surgeon affects scar formation. Pegasus Emergency Group has extensive experience treating routine lacerations, because we treat many wounds on a daily basis. We will recommend the best course of treatment for your individual needs.
Pegasus Emergency Group will care for you when you come to the emergency department, along with a trained team of nurses, technicians, and other staff. After your visit, our team may recommend follow-up care. This will be outlined in the detailed instructions you receive upon release. It is very important to make follow-up appointments as advised in these instructions. If you experience problems with follow-up care, please contact the emergency department or your primary care physician.
After all visits to the emergency department, it is advised that you notify you primary care physician and follow up as required.
