Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act of 1986. If a hopsital is receiving Medicare/Medicaid payments (which they all are), they cannot turn away someone in an emergent condition. At the very least, the provider has to perform a screening exam and determine how urgent their condition is. The ER does have the option of referring you to another faciliity if it's non-emergent.
