People with non-emergency needs often go straight to the emergency room for an injury or illness, many of which could have been treated by a provider at urgent care or walk-in clinic – for the same level of high-quality medical care. Knowing the difference between a true emergency and one that is an urgent-care injury or illness not only could save time, but also money
Midwest Express Clinic vs. an Emergency Room Visit Typical Co-Pay
This is what you typically pay if you have met your deductible. In addition to the initial co-pay at the ER, you will usually receive additional bills from the doctors and others. The urgent care bill includes everything.
Typical Total Cost
This is what you typically pay if you have not met your deductible for the year. Note: if you are self-insured, the savings are usually more.
Typical Waiting Time
If the wait time is a factor, urgent care visits are often much quicker. Even if an ER advertises “low wait times,” that often does not include the total time required to conclude treatment and be released from a busy ER setting. Nationally, the average time to complete an ER visit is over four hours versus an hour or less for most Midwest Express Clinic locations.
It is easy to see that visiting one of our walk-in clinic locations is the right choice for you and your family’s non-emergency medical needs.
When to Get Immediate Care
Home remedies are a good way to help heal or stop common illnesses and minor injuries and can be very useful. However, it is important to know when the problem has become too much to handle on your own.
