Compared to the cost of visiting the emergency room or a hospital, your urgent care visit at UrgentMED is likely to cost a fraction of what you might otherwise have to pay. Numerous surveys and studies have shown that the cost-effectiveness and affordability of urgent care surpasses other care options by far.
A cost analysis performed by the Urgent Care Association (UCA) includeddata from Cigna, which revealed nearly 50 percent of all visits to clinics for urgent care result in a patient cost of under $150 on average. In comparison, the average cost of a visit to the emergency room is as high as $2,250.
This data point is a key indicator of the kind of affordability in quality care that a reputable urgent care center such as UrgentMED can offer to the communities. The UCA report also highlighted that the fact that urgent care clinics usually accept most types of insurance coverage, including Medicaid and Medicare.
When you have insurance coverage, the cost of deductibles and co-pays is likely to be lower when you seek urgent care treatment at UrgentMED as against an ER visit. No wonder an increasing number of people now recognize the quality of care and value benefits that walk-in care clinics such as UrgentMED offer, and are willing to choose our services in place of ER for non-life threatening conditions.

UrgentMED clinics are available to you right when you are in need of care. We are open daily Monday to Friday 8AM to 8PM and on weekends from 9AM to 5PM.

With our efficient and streamlined systems in place, we are often in a position to diagnose, treat and relieve the patient in less than one hour.
Considering the fact that ERs across the state are overflowing with patient visits, especially during the time periods when primary care doctor offices are closed. The reason behind this challenging situation is that many patients visit ERs to seek treatment for non medical emergency health conditions. Patients are not at fault because they have little access to after-hours medical care elsewhere. The end-result is an overwhelmed waiting room at the emergency medicine room and extended hours of wait time.
UrgentMED is changing this scenario in Southern California and relieving the pressure on the health system by offering reliable and timely option for urgent care.

When Should You Visit the Emergency Room?
While we encourage you to see us at UrgentMED urgent care centers because of the wide-ranging benefits you can get, in certain circumstances you may still be advised to go to an emergency room only.
