With so many types of medical clinics available, it can be difficult to determine which type of care is recommended for particular situations. Although all clinics can provide different services depending on their access to resources and specialties of their health care providers, most urgent care clinics are well set up to provide essential medical care for the vast majority of medical situations, including necessary preventative care such as vaccinations, screenings, and physical examinations, to more intensive treatments for unexpected medical situations such as minor injuries and illnesses.

How is urgent care different from ER and primary care clinics?


Urgent care, emergency care, and primary care are all varying levels of medical care ranging in the severity of conditions that are regularly treated at the clinics. Primary care clinics provide medical care for mild or completely non-urgent situations where patients can schedule appointments in advance. Typically, services provided by primary care clinics include more preventative measures such as immunizations, physical examinations, and care for chronic or long-term conditions. Urgent care clinics are more of the middle ground in terms of the severity of conditions being treated, with most urgent care clinics providing a very wide range of services for the vast majority of acute minor injuries and illnesses that are not life- or limb-threatening. Emergency room services are typically recommended for patients who have life- or limb-threatening health conditions and require immediate intensive medical care to treat the condition as quickly as possible. These treatments may require more invasive procedures or surgical procedures in order to quickly and effectively reduce the severity of the condition.

How do I find an affordable urgent care near me?


Typically, medical services provided by urgent care clinics tend to be one of the most affordable health care options available, particularly when compared to emergency medical services as most urgent care clinics will often have lower overhead costs. The focus of urgent care is to provide immediate care for minor injuries and illnesses, which will include a range of treatment options to allow patients to choose more cost-effective options if they are recommended. Urgent care clinics also generally accept most major insurance plans or offer financing options, ensuring that all patients have access to affordable and high-quality medical care.

Physicians Now Urgent Care cares about all patients in need of our medical services having access to these essential services, ensuring that patients can clearly understand all potential fees before receiving care. We accept most major insurance providers but encourage patients to familiarize themselves with their personal insurance policy in case any referrals or services are required to receive coverage and to make sure that their insurance provider is accepted by our clinic. We also encourage any uninsured patients to reach out to our clinic to find out more about payment options, any likely fees that will be required to receive care, and to see if any offers can be provided to them to help lower the costs for provided services.

Are there any discounts available for uninsured patients visiting urgent care?


Physicians Now Urgent Care does have offers currently available for specific services, including various types of COVID-19 testing services, Yellow Fever vaccinations, DOT physical examinations, pre-operation physical examinations, and cash pay options for a basic office visit. Patients are encouraged to sign up to receive notice of any other offers that may become available to help lower the costs of medical care whenever possible. The services we provide also will start at a discounted rate for those who are choosing to self-pay and can be clearly outlined before scheduling an appointment to ensure that every patient has the opportunity to make an informed decision before receiving those services.

Is urgent care cheaper than an ER?


Due to the general nature of the care that is provided through urgent care clinics compared to emergency rooms, urgent care tends to be more affordable than emergency care. The services and treatments provided by emergency rooms tend to include more extensive treatment options, including more invasive procedures or needing more resources to provide comprehensive care. Urgent care clinics typically provide care for minor injuries and illnesses, which tend to require far less invasive or intensive treatments and use fewer resources. In general, urgent care clinics also have lower overhead costs than the average emergency room, making them able to provide high-quality medical care for patients at lower costs.
