Nothing in this section shall be construed to restrict the right of the commission to increase a hospital's schedule of rates for required emergency services, except that the increase shall not be solely to offset a reduction in hospital revenue as a result of reduced rates for primary care provided in the emergency room.
Nothing in this section shall be construed to permit a hospital to refuse to provide emergency room services to a patient who does not require the services on an emergency basis.
