    Do I have to pay for the medical examination?

    Does the family have to pay for any medical examiner services?

    No.  Examinations performed at the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office are required statutorily and provided in conjunction with transport to the medical examiner’s office by the local county government at no cost to a decedent’s family.  However, families may be billed by their selected funeral home for the transportation of the decedent from the medical examiner’s office to the funeral home or crematorium after completion of the examination.
