Feel Better,

Cost of Urgent Care

Healthcare spending reached $3.33 trillion dollars in 2016; that’s $10,348 per person. Whether it’s a routine visit to the doctor or a childhood vaccination, even a 15-minute office visit can cost several hundred dollars. Fortunately, there is an affordable alternative to emergency room visits for non life-threatening illnesses and injuries: PhysicianOne Urgent Care. If you’re wondering “What is the cost of urgent care?”, read on to learn more.

On average, $150 vs. $750.

According to one study conducted by the Annals of Internal Medicine, it costs roughly $155 to be treated for three of the most common illnesses in the country—pharyngitis, urinary tract infection, and ear infection in an urgent care setting. At PhysicianOne Urgent Care our costs tend to be lower.  Actual cost will vary by condition, treatment or procedures required, state, and whether or not the patient is insured.

On average, $150 vs. $750.

The average ER visit can cost at least $750 for treatment (after the initial co-pay), while the exact same treatment at PhysicianOne Urgent Care is closer to $150.

And insurance co-pays tend to be significantly less expensive for urgent care than the emergency room. Co-pays are determined by a patient’s insurance plan and are not set by PhysicianOne Urgent Care. Here’s one example of differences in co-pay for the same condition:

Actual cost will vary by condition, treatment or procedures required, state, and whether or not the patient is insured.

A number of factors.

In most cases, the cost of any medical visit depends on factors such as nature of the illness or injury, severity of the condition, treatment or procedures required, state (Massachusetts, Connecticut, or New York), and whether or not the patient is insured.

That varies and is determined by your insurance company.

Insurance co-pays and deductibles vary and are set by your insurance company. See a list of insurances we accept, here. For information about your urgent care co-pay or your deductible, contact your insurance company, directly.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
