What is an emergency?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "emergency."

Where insurance is concerned, an emergency is a health issue that can't wait. It's a disease or injury that happens suddenly and demands immediate treatment. Health insurance restrictions on out-of-network care often do not apply when the patient is in a medical emergency.

An emergency is a medical condition that needs to be addressed now. "Later" might be too late.
