Jan. 4, 2023 – If you’ve gone to the emergency room recently, you likely know how much such a visit can cost. A new study by researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation finds that even for people with private insurance who are employed by large companies, the average out-of-pocket cost of an ER visit can exceed their savings.

In 2019, the study shows, patients enrolled in big companies’ health plans paid an average of $646 in copays and deductibles for each ER visit. A quarter of visits cost more than $907 out of pocket, and another quarter cost under $128.
