Is suicide considered an emergency?

Last august, I admitted myself into and in-network hospital because I was planning to commit suicide. They didn’t have any beds available for me in their psychiatric unit nor were their any other hospitals in-network that had beds available. They transferred me to an out-of-network hospital.

I am filing an appeal on the out of network claim and trying to get it filed as in-network since I went to an in-network hospital first and I did not have a choice in the transfer since I could not discharge myself since I was suicidal.

My argument is that it was an emergency and there were no in-network providers to provide medical care.

But I just wanted to make sure the emergency argument would hold up. Is planning to commit suicide considered an emergency? I’ve tried to research it but I have found in recent relevant articles. Does anybody know of anything that could support my argument?
