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.

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.

Convenient Hours and No Prior Appointments Needed

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. We realize that quite often when you have an urgent need for medical attention, your primary care physician may not be able to confirm an appointment with you right away. We have changed that because we are open 7 days a week and we welcome you to simply walk in without any need for a prior appointment.

Our dedicated health care teams are available to you and will see you within minutes of your visit to one of our urgent care clinics. Whether you need a flu shot or a Covid test at short notice, or need expert care after having tested positive for an illness, or you want annual physicals for the family, we are here to attend to all your urgent care needs.

Providing Relief from ER Logjams with No Wait Times

When you make a visit to the emergency room, chances are that you might have to wait for hours with your physical discomfort, anxiety and concerns before you are able to see a medical professional. On the other hand, when you walk into an UrgentMED clinic even without an appointment, our care teams will be able to attend to you within minutes. 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. If you are in need of prompt care but are not experiencing a life-threatening health condition, UrgentMED urgent care centers are the right choice for you.

When Should You Visit the Emergency Room?

The on-site tests available at UrgentMED include EKG, lab work for blood and urine, drug testing, STD screening, strep, mono and flu test, tuberculosis skin test, and x-rays. Our practitioners will assess the test results within the context of your current symptoms and general health condition, and utilize them in conjunction with any other medical exams.
