SignatureCare Emergency Center in Killeen, TX is first to be accredited by the U.S. military to provide services to patients with TRICARE 'Select' and 'Prime' insurance plans, other ER locations to follow soon

HOUSTON, Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Houston, TX based SignatureCare Emergency Center is proud to announce that

its Killeen, TX emergency center has been accredited by the U.S. government to provide services to TRICARE medical insurance participants.

This is great news for military families in that area. TRICARE is a national insurance program that serves U.S. military families.

The company also announced that it is working with authorities to accredit the remaining fifteen emergency centers throughout Texas.

"This has been a long journey, but we are proud to have received this accreditation. It is difficult to receive TRICARE accreditation from the U.S. military," said Dr. Aaron Braun, DO, one of the Managing Directors of SignatureCare Emergency Center.

"Being accredited allows us to provide quality 24-hour emergency medical services to military families with TRICARE in Killeen, TX," he added.

Dr. Braun said that before this accreditation, military families in Killeen, Texas had to either pay, out of pocket, the full cost to receive ER services at SignatureCare Emergency Center or be forced to wait endlessly for service in area hospital-based emergency rooms.

"With this accreditation, these military families can now walk into our Killeen ER without prior appointments and be seen by a board-certified physician in less than 10 minutes," he added.

Dr. Braun confirmed that the company is working with the U.S. government on the accreditation process for the remaining ER locations.

"We believe that our military families who have given, and continue to give, so much to this country everyday deserve to get the best medical care and that is what they will get at SignatureCare Emergency Center," he said.

SignatureCare Emergency Center operates 24-hour emergency centers throughout Texas including nine locations in Houston, and one location each in Austin, Killeen, Texarkana, Midland, Odessa, College Station, Sugar Land area and Stafford.

"At SignatureCare, our motto is "Your Care is Our Signature." We stand by that. Our goal is to make our patients' lives better and we are recognized for our commitment to the community, for providing superior healthcare services, and for delivering outstanding value through clinical innovations," Dr. Braun said.

He added that the company takes pride in providing exceptional medical and health services to the community through "our knowledgeable, trained, skilled and caring medical staff. That is what our military families can expect from us."
