In brief: Yes
The emergency room is required by law to evaluate you before they can ask about insurance or money.
If you can't pay, the hospital will try to help you get medicaid so your state can pay. The problem is if you have some money and no insurance, an er visit can bankrupt you. But if you are in pain, your life could be at risk. Go now.
