How much does it cost?

If the urgent care clinic you're going to is in-network co-pay is typically around $20-$50, regardless of the reason for the visit. If the clinic is out-of-network then your co-pay might be as high as $100, so ensuring that the urgent care you're going to is in-network with your health plan will ensure that you don't end up with a sticker shock. Prognify Urgent Care is in-network with most major health plans in Michigan. We also have affordable pricing for self-pay or uninsured patients.

Is urgent care cheaper than an ER?

Studies have shown that urgent care visits are between 1/5th to 1/10th of an ER visit. The studies have also shown that almost 75% of emergency visits can be handled by most urgent cares. You'll not only be saving money but also saving time by choosing an urgent care over an ER for non-emergency care.

Key Takeaway: Most urgent care visits are covered by insurance.

Urgent care is a great option for same-day treatment for non-emergency care. Almost all insurance plans cover most urgent care visits, however it's always a good idea to check with your insurance provider and the specific urgent care location to understand your coverage.
