Pediatric Urgent Care FAQs
Most pediatrician offices are only open 9-5 on weekdays. So for those late-night fevers or nasty weekend scrapes, many worried parents head to the emergency room. But oftentimes, that’s not the best course of action. Pediatric urgent care clinics treat acute and minor conditions in children. Typically open until midnight and throughout the weekend, they supplement your pediatrician’s office by providing quick medical attention outside of business hours or when your regular doctor isn’t available. Pediatric urgent care is designed to save you unnecessary (and unpleasant) trips to the ER.Read All
Urgent care centers could be considered a hybrid between a primary care physicians (PCPs) office and an emergency room, serving the immediate and after hours needs of nearby patients. Many urgent care operators even indicate they can diagnose and treat up to 75% of the patients typically seen in an ER. The real difference is in the patient experience as the average ER wait time is nearly 2.5 hours whereas an urgent care will likely only be 15-45 minutes and the cost is usually a fraction of what you would incur. In the case of a medical emergency, always go to an ER as an urgent care is designed for non-emergent and more minor injuries and illnesses.Read All
Kids get sick. Especially once they start school and their immune systems are bombarded with the germs of other children, it may seem as though your little one is coming down with something more often than they used to. These illnesses may range to include strep throat, ear and sinus infections, common colds and the flu, pink eye and pneumonia, all of which can be treated at pediatric urgent care clinics. You can also be seen for broken bones and sprains, bug bites and stings, cuts and burns, swallowed objects, allergic reactions and more.Read All
Keeping kids healthy and out of the doctor's office can sometimes be a taller task than meets the eye. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t easy(-ish) ways to make a difference. Simple things like getting enough sleep, washing hands and drinking enough water can go a very long way. Expanding into vitamins, avoiding smokers, managing stress and eating a well balanced diet take caring for your kids to the next level. And, of course, a good reason to go to the doctor or pediatric urgent care is to get annual immunizations, including the flu shot.Read All
Urgent care centers vary by location and there are no real standards between them. This means that one urgent care clinic might charge you $75 while another one a mile away could charge $150, assuming you are a cash paying patient. However, in general the cost of an urgent care visit without insurance ranges from $100-125. This is the base price of a visit before additional services. Of course, there are a few additional urgent care services that could make your visit more costly including medication and injections (including immunizations), tests, labs and x-rays, casting broken bones, as well as splints and stitches. If you are walking in with insurance, typical co-pays wil range from $20-50 depending on your plan and whether you are in network with the provider.Read All
Each insurance provider determines if it covers urgent care centers or not. And individual clinics and providers may or may not have a relationship with a specific carrier (or plan). This makes it complicated, for sure. However, in most cases insurance providers will cover urgent care and patients will be expected to pay a co-payment for each visit. In some rare cases, an urgent care center may choose not to accept your insurance, even if your insurance provider would otherwise pay for the care. While you could safely assume that an urgent care center will take your insurance, it is always best to call ahead and be certain.Read All
Did you know that, on average, between 5 and 20% of people in the United States get the flu each year? That’s roughly 16 to 64 million people. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 200 thousand of those people are hospitalized due to complications from the flu, whi...
