Affordable Health Care Options
Expanding your care options
Urgent care - also known as immediate care or walk-in medical care - expands the health care options of your primary care doctor, the ER, and retail health clinics. Urgent care can also serve to bridge the gap between these options. Most urgent care facilities offer experienced medical providers, extended hours, and walk-in service.
Making health care affordable
Facing an urgent illness or injury shouldn’t automatically create a financial burden for a patient or the patient’s family. You can benefit from significant cost savings using an urgent care facility versus a hospital ER – without sacrificing quality of care.
- Better value than Emergency Rooms — A recent study shows ER costs are 686% higher for the same quality of medical care received at an urgent care facility.
- Potential for lower co-payments — Many insurance companies have an urgent care or primary care co-payment that is substantially lower than the ER co-payment.
These days, you do have more options. And urgent care may be your very best choice for quality medical care at a reasonable price.
