Why Use an Urgent Care Facility?
There are many reasons as to why to come see us as opposed to an emergency room.
1. Better Value than an Emergency Room – A recent study shows emergency room costs are approximately 700% more than the cost for the same level of quality medical care received at an urgent care facility. What this means is that the cost of care is substantially lower to you at an urgent care facility than an emergency room.
2. Save Time – When you go to an emergency room and your issue is not life threatening you will be put at the bottom of the list and often have to wait hours before you are seen.
3. Lower co-payments – Many major insurance companies categorize urgent care facilities as a primary care facilities, so co-payments may be substantially lower than co-payments required for a trip to the emergency room.
4. No Facility Fee – We submit your insurance claim and you receive a single bill. Emergency rooms charge you both a facility fee and a fee for the physicians service. So, not only are your charges much higher at the emergency room but you will generally receive multiple bills.
