Medical services are any such services rendered to an individual by an insurance professional acting on the behalf of a health care provider. These can include medical services; diagnostic tests; dental services; hospitalization; therapy as ordered by a doctor; and many more. Such services can be rendered by any licensed health care provider in the United States, as long as they are practicing before a state board is licensed to do the same. In fact, such a board is created by each state to govern the practice of medicine and to protect patients. These boards are located in the state medical codes.
All health insurance plans cover some medical services provided by medical service providers, regardless of whether they are covered by an HMO or PPO. HMO and PPO both cover medical treatment, while independent health insurance plans do not. If you want more information about which plan is best for you and your family, talk with your health insurance professional, or visit a CA health insurance site. In addition, most major hospitals in California offer a variety of medical treatment that is not covered by health insurance plans, including hospital dial-up services, laboratory services, and imaging services such as x-rays. If you experience an emergency, call the medical treatment center immediately.
The emergency medical services provider means any doctor, hospital, or emergency medical services provider who is contacted to treat a patient in an emergency situation. Such a person must be licensed to practice medicine in the State he works in. Such a person can be the doctor, the hospital’s emergency room doctor, or someone else working at the same hospital. In order to find such a person, a patient can call the American Association of Medical Insurance Plan (AAMAIP) or the National Association of State Boards of Medicine and Health Quality Promotion (NASHRP). Neither of these organizations handles emergency medical services providers, but instead directs patients to such a professionals.
