Make the Most of Urgent Care

Having a primary care physician is an important step toward making sure that your healthcare needs are met and that you’re always up to date on important immunizations and preventative care. Nonetheless, your primary care physician may not always be available. When you’re ill, getting an appointment at your doctor’s office may prove to be difficult, especially during harsh Blue Island winters. While urgent care is not meant to be substituted for an emergency center in a hospital, it is a good way to ensure that you can be seen by a doctor for urgent issues that aren’t emergencies, such as persistent coughs, long-lasting colds, burns, and other ailments.

Why Choose Us?

Midwest Express Clinic works hard to meet your urgent care needs in Illinois and Indiana. Whether it’s for a cut or a similar injury, a persistent fever, or any of the other various illnesses that might afflict residents of Willowbrook, Blue Island, Munster, Hammond, and Schererville, we provide all that we can to make your trip comfortable, quick, and affordable.

Typical wait times for our clinics are typically under an hour, while most trips to the ER can have a wait time of around four hours. At Midwest Express Clinic, we want to make sure that you’re given effective treatment so you can return home and recover quickly. We also offer the option to sign in online from the comfort of your own home.

Cost is a primary reason that people avoid seeking medical attention in urgent situations. At Midwest Express Clinic, our priority is getting our patients the care they need at an affordable price, which is why we keep our typical co-pays low.

For insured visitors, co-pays are usually around $50, which is much more manageable than the $200 or more that a trip to the ER would cost. We even make sure to keep it affordable for the uninsured or those who have not met their deductible.


Accepted Insurance

At Midwest Express Clinic, we don’t want you to have to pay out of pocket if it’s not necessary, which is why we accept a variety of insurance plans, including Medicaid, Aetna, Cigna, United Health Care, and others. If you intend to use your insurance during your visit, be sure to bring all required documentation (insurance card and ID).

If you’re uninsured or choose not to use your insurance to help pay for your visit, we make our best effort to keep your out-of-pocket costs low with self-pay rate options that you can inquire about at the time of your visit.
