How much does urgent care cost?

The cost of urgent care depends on various factors, including diagnosis, treatment and care. 

Most insurance covers a significant portion of your urgent care visit. The biggest factor to consider is whether you’ve met your deductible for the year or not.

The average cost of an in-network urgent care visit is affordable for most with insurance. Average co-pays range from $25 to 75 per visit. In some instances, copay costs may be higher if you haven’t met your annual deductible. 

In some cases, insurance providers may have restrictions on which urgent care facilities you can visit. It is always best to visit in-network urgent care providers. If one is not within reach and you are experiencing an urgent medical issue, don’t hesitate to visit the closest one to your home or place of injury. Rapid treatment is vital.

When considering medical insurance coverage, there are three main factors:

1.     Test and x-rays 

If you need an x-ray, blood test, viral test, EKG or any other specialty test or imaging to confirm your diagnosis, the cost will be mostly covered by insurance. A small out-of-pocket fee may be billed to you if you have not met your annual deductible. 

2.     Medications and injections

Similar to standard doctor’s visits, most medications and injections are covered by medical insurance when using an in-network pharmacy. A reasonable copay may apply to some medications at the time of pick-up. Speak with your pharmacist to determine the exact cost. 

3.     Cast and splints

If you’ve sprained or broken a bone, a cast or splint may be needed for proper healing and protection until you can be evaluated further by an orthopedic specialist. In most instances, medical insurance covers a significant portion of the cost for casts and splints. 

Here’s some more information, including details on accepted insurance, that may be helpful before your visit.  If you have an urgent or acute medical issue that needs treatment today, don’t hesitate.
